Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A new business opens its doors in Binghamton and promotes a healthy lifestyle. Confluence Running is now open on South Washington Street.

Although their main business is selling running gear and apparel, they're goal is to get customers more active.

They hold weekly running groups for people at all levels and hold open training sessions to teach proper form.

The new store isn't just looking to make sales. The manager says they want to see a more fit and active Binghamton.

"We're looking to be that support for the community, that knowledge for the community, not just 'Hey, come in, buy a pair of shoes, OK, goodbye.' You know that's what we're all about," manager Matthew Gawors said.

Gawors has a Facebook page with health and wellness tips and upcoming events for the community to join.
