FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH, SHOE STATION WILL DONATE A PORTION OF RELATED T-SHIRT SALES

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Southeastern chain Shoe Station is donating a portion of the sales of related t-shirts to The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

"Susan G. Komen is an excellent not-for-profit organization and Shoe Station is proud to donate part of the proceeds from the sale of awareness t-shirts by the brands: It's a Girl Thing, Girlie Girl, and Simply Southern," stated Shoe Station's Director of Marketing Rachael Deininger. "Many of these t-shirts were designed here in the Southeast, which adds further meaning."

Shoe Station employs more than 500 individuals in the Southeast.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation is the world's largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit outside of the federal government while providing assistance to those effected, according to its website.

Shoe Station's President and CEO Brent Barkin said, "We are thankful to Susan G. Komen for giving us the opportunity to bring awareness to this issue, which effects entire families."

Shoe Station is one of the nation's largest independently owned shoe retailers, with 21 open-shelf stores in five states -- Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Georgia. The chain also has an e-commerce site, www.shoestation.com, that attracts hundreds of thousands of vistors annually. The site will feature a banner in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
