A Nike women’s-only store in California offers women’s running, training, and sportswear products and also contains an in-store fitness studio for group and personal fitness training sessions. The store consistently earns profits in excess of $423,000 per year and is located on prime real estate in the center of town. The store owner pays $14,000 per month in rent for the building.
