For those who love shoes, preparations are being made for the opening of a Shoe Show Mega Store in the Woodland Plaza Shopping Center in Harlan. Bringing a new and more expanded shoe store, Shoe Shoe in the Village Center Mall will relocate to the former Lee Furniture Store.
Shoe Show Mega Store will take over a total of 12,726 square feet compared to their present 3,550 square feet at the Village Center Mall.
“We have been in Harlan for the past 27 years,” said Shoe Show Representative Vicki S. Ayers. “The customers in Harlan County have been good to Shoe Show.”
Ayers said one of the things Shoe Show does when they have been in a trade area or market for several years is to insure they have the correct size store, and that they have a position in the market to where they can maximize the sales potential, and give to the consumers their “best foot forward.”
“At this time in our history in Harlan, we felt we owed it to our customers to give them a new store and even a new concept that will keep our customers thinking Shoe Show for all their family footwear in Harlan County, and they don’t have to drive to larger markets to shop for family footwear,” said Ayers. “The change will allow Shoe Show to be positioned for the next 25 years.”
