The Walking Company Rx held its official grand opening Saturday afternoon at the Shoppes at Westlake Village, complete with a ribbon cutting ceremony, consultations and a meet and greet with local athletes. Currently there are only four stores of its kind in the U.S. “We carry more of a therapeutic selection, so more widths, more depths, a little more of a range of sizes comparable to our other TWC locations,” said Will Pensinger, pedorthist and area store manager.
In addition to offering a stylish array of shoes like its mall-based sister stores, the Walking Company Rx fits customers with orthotics, fills prescriptions, and offers an additional level professional of service. The other specialty stores are located in Simi Valley, Ventura and Santa Barbara. “You can make an appointment, and we’ll fit you with custom shoes and orthotics, offer a free gait analysis and give you a free a pedorthic evaluation to make sure you’re walking in comfort,” said Pensinger.
Making guest appearances at the event were members of the Santa Barbara Track Club, whose footwear are sponsored by ABEO, the retailer’s number one selling brand. “We’ve been wearing them for a few months now, and they are comfortable,” said Olympic hopeful Barbara Nwaba.
The Walking Company Rx is located at 30770 Russell Ranch Rd, Westlake Village, CA. To schedule an appointment with the pedorthist, call 818-338-3354.
