Flowood, MS -- Shoe Station, an independent retail chain, is moving its store in the Flowood Commons Center two doors down to the former Babies R Us space in October 2018, after the space has been renovated.
“Since the day we have opened our Flowood location, we have been tight on space since the demand was so high for the brands we carry," said Shoe Station President and CEO Brent Barkin. "Our new location will be nearly twice the size, at 24,000 square-feet. The new store will have room for an expanded assortment of sizes and widths for the entire family."
To facilitate the move, Shoe Station is having its first-ever Million Dollar Moving Sale, which features approximately $1M of inventory. The sale begins August 3 and will run 3-4 weeks.
"The Million Dollar Moving Sale will have outrageous deals at bargain prices," Shoe Station marketing representative Rachael Deininger said.
Much of the sale's inventory is being shipped in from Shoe Station's twenty stores in five states.
"Other retailers offer sales that are not as good as they sound. We reject that notion. Our business model has always been based on value and volume, and the Million Dollar Moving Sale epitomizes our philosophy," Brent Barkin stated.
The new Shoe Station space, opening October 2018, will feature an enlarged area for accessories including handbags, wallets, t-shirts, and hats.
"After we close the doors of our current location in September, we will need a few weeks to finish the move. So this Million Dollar Moving Sale is an opportunity to thank our loyal Mississippi customers for their patience and to help them find trends before the new season," Barkin stated.
Shoe Station is one of the nation’s largest shoe retailers, with stores in Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Georgia. The family-owned chain was founded in 1984 and has had a presence in Mississippi since 1987.
