Just Do It KC: NEW Nike Store Grand Opening on the Kansas City Plaza
Happy Friday everyone! It's an exciting weekend in Kansas City, because the NEW Nike store located on the Country Club Plaza (right across from Core Power Yoga) opens TOMORROW!
Yesterday I got a sneak peek at what the new store has to offer at last night's VIP event and let me just say - you do NOT want to miss it!
I have always been a big Nike fan. Ever since my very first pair of basketball shoes way back in 1st grade, Nike has been my go-to for sportswear, running shoes, and cute athletic clothes I can rock at the gym. Kansas City's new location is special, because they have merchandise specific to the KC community! Royals and Chiefs fans: this is your PLACE!
I stopped by the Nike Factory Outlet at the Legends yesterday afternoon to get dressed from head to toe in all things Nike before the VIP event last night. If you follow me on Instagram @samanthabowers_ and caught my story, you may have seen me running around the store showing off all of my favorite items. I ended up choosing a sportswear outfit that fit my personality perfectly. Bright red "Just Do It" leggings, a mesh knit crop top, the Pro Indy white and black sports bra (with hyper cooling technology), and a pair of Nike Roshe sneakers to stay comfy for the event. Watch a video recap from my shopping trip below to see a few more of my current favorite items!

After a super fun time hanging out at the Legends location, it was time to head to the new store on the Plaza for the VIP preview of the store. I had SO much fun seeing all of the new items, talking with other KC fitness & Nike fanatics, and snapping photos at the photo booth!
I have to say, the Plaza store truly feels like a piece of Kansas City. My favorite part is the sign on the ceiling right when you walk in that says "Just Do It KC." It is full of modern character and brings a sense of community to the shopping experience! Let's face it - I could spend HOURS in any Nike store (athletic wear is my weakness) but the new Plaza location makes me want to stay even longer.
But, the weekend has only just begun! Tomorrow, Saturday, July 8th, is the GRAND OPENING! You can join a group workout at 9am, the ribbon cutting ceremony at 10am, and then shop until you drop. Sunday is packed full of events too - with a Nike Run starting at 9am and a Nike Training Club workout at 5pm. If you live in the Kansas City area, this new store is something you absolutely HAVE to come and see.
