'Here to get the shoes for you': New Destin business offers footwear and more
Need some new flip-flops, heels, athletic shoes or sandals?
There’s a new place in Destin to find all of these shoe varieties and more: Shoe Station, located in the Paradise Isle Shopping Center next to Office Depot.
“This store is going to open with a good assortment of brands,” said Vice President of Stores Randy Lambert. “We’re about ready to rock and roll.”
The shoe store, which spans a massive 14,000 square feet, will be the 19th store for the privately owned company, which has lo-cations in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.
“Destin has been a market that we’ve looked at for several years,” Lambert said. “It’s a very up and coming, growing market and we felt like this would be a good fit for us.”
Lambert said both the quality and variety of their prod-ucts set the Shoe Station apart from other shoe stores in the area.
“Great selection; it’s not only the brands but the price points,” he said. “We offer sizes that a lot of shoe stores don’t. We buy them about as small and as big as they make them. If we are missing your size and any of our stores have it, we will get it and ship it to you. We are here to get the shoes for you.”
Some of the top brands displayed in the store are Nike, Dockers, Sketchers, Sperry and Birkenstock in expansive children’s, women’s and men’s departments. In addition to footwear, Shoe Station also offers some apparel and accessories.
“We dabble a little bit in other apparel. With shoes you need socks and with leather shoes you probably want a belt,” said Lambert. “We also have T-shirts, sunglasses, shoe care products and Tervis Tumblers.”
Shoe Station will soft open today with a grand opening scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday. During the grand opening event, customers can enter to win door prizes and receive a gift with purchase while supplies last. For more information, visit www.shoestation.com.
