Jun '08
The Walking Company, the world's largest specialty retailer of comfort footwear, announced the opening of three flagship locations; a brand new location in the heart of Los Angeles' upscale Century City district and newly designed flagships at The Forum Shops at Caesars in Las Vegas and The Mall at Short Hills in New Jersey. The new flagship locations bring The Walking Company's total count to an impressive 200 stores.

"These flagship locations feature design, inventory and technology innovations that make them the benchmark for the footwear industry and provide shoppers with the ultimate customer experience," said Lee Cox, senior vice president of retail at The Walking Company. "We continue to receive extremely positive feedback from customers in these premium locations and plan to continue opening flagships in strategic locations across the country."

The Walking Company's new flagship locations feature innovative store design elements and offer the largest comfort footwear selection in the world, including exclusive product lines and styles from brands like ECCO, Dansko, Mephisto, UGG, Pikolinos, MBT and other premium comfort brands from around the world. Each location will have access to over one million pairs of premium comfort shoes via the in-store internet kiosk.

In addition to the new flagship stores, The Walking Company also continues to open standard format locations in premium malls across the country including 11 new stores in the second quarter of 2008.

This continued growth extends the chain's retail presence to over 200 top performing locations throughout the nation further strengthening the company's position as the world's largest specialty retailer of comfort footwear. The Walking Company has plans for additional store openings this summer following the aggressive expansion plan that has helped the chain more than double its store count in the past three years.

All of the footwear sold at The Walking Company comes with the company's promise of authentic comfort, which guarantees every product is made with the highest quality materials and unsurpassed craftsmanship to provide optimal comfort.
