The Shoe Zoo is going out of business

January 30th, 2011 · 2 Comments

We just received the following email from the owner of the Shoe Zoo near U Village letting us know the store is going out of business. A sale on all remaining merchandise started today.  The Shoe Zoo is located at 2920 NE Blakeley.

Well, it is with a very heavy heart, that after 23 years of taking care of the best customers I could ask for, I must announce, that starting today, we will begin our last sale ever – our going out of business sale. This was a very tough decision to make, but one that had to be made. I can’t give an exact date of how long we will be here, but I must sell everything in the store. You name it, it’s for sale. I will start by making all merchandise 30% off. Hopefully, you can help me get the word out. Please tell everyone you know, who has kids, the news. I would really appreciate it. If this store has made a difference for your families over the years, please come in and pick up a few pair of shoes. Please be sure to use any credits, or gift certificates as soon as possible.
