Our brand new Raleigh, NC store is set to open up its doors on Friday, May 28, so for today’s Employee Profile we are highlighting the new Raleigh store manager, Hugo. Featuring our brand new layout and design, this store will be easy to shop but, of course, will still be full of all the great brands and value that you expect from Performance. Our Grand Opening celebration will start the weekend of Friday, June 4th, but come on by to check out the store starting this Friday and say hello to Hugo and his team.
