This past Saturday, Famous Footwear celebrated the grand opening of its newest Philadelphia location. The sun shone, the line of people stretched well around the building and the smell of free shoes was in the air. It was a good day for shoe shopping.
Shopping for shoes can be a real pain when you’re shopping for the entire family, but Famous Footwear is my go-to for one stop shopping. They carry a great selection of shoes for men, women and kids at very reasonable prices and often have great sales. If you’ve never been to Famous Footwear, it’s definitely worth the trip.
We arrived to the grand opening event a little before 10am and a sizable line had already formed. Thankfully, my kids were very patient as we waited in line and found the many festive red and white balloons to be endlessly entertaining. After some fanfare, the doors opened, the line began to move, and we soon found ourselves in 5,000 square feet of shoe awesomeness. I love a brand spanking new store, but a brand spanking new store full of shoes is definitely something to get excited about. Add FREE shoes, a DJ, drawings and prizes and you’ve got yourself the best damn day ever.
While I didn’t win any prizes, I was super excited about Famous Footwear’s selections of children’s shoes. I was able to find a pair of sneakers to accommodate my son’s wide feet, which was truly an accomplishment. My kids enjoyed the balloons, music and general excitement of the event, and helped me pick out some fabulous new wedges in addition to their own new shoes.
To continue celebrating the opening of the new location, Famous Footwear will continue to host Free Shoe Saturdays with hourly shoe drawings from 1 p.m. to 5pm every Saturday until September 12. Who doesn’t love free shoes?!
