West El Paso Is Expanding With Addition Of Rack Room Shoes Store
Sunland Plaza welcomes retailer Rack Room Shoes to the neighborhood.
Rack Room Shoes is opening a new store in the exact location where Famous Footwear closed a few months ago near Target in west El Paso.
Rack Room Shoes joins Five Below as the new retailers that have moved into the neighborhood shopping centers across from Sunland Park Mall.
West El Paso is expanding as Rack Room Shoes plans to open its sixth El Paso location between Ulta Beauty and Micheals Arts & Crafts store at Sunland Plaza.
Rack Room Shoes has occupied the same space that was initially Famous Footwear and is currently moving in and actively hiring staff.
Based out of North Carolina, Rack Room Shoes operates more than 500 stores in 36 states under the Rack Room Shoes and Off-Broadway Shoe Warehouse brands.
Thanks to e-commerce, brick-and-mortar shoe stores have all but disappeared, so it's a welcome sight to see a new family shoe store opening in the area, especially after Payless Shoe Source closed nearby a few years back.
Rack Room Shoes offers a variety of name-brand shoes such as sandals, athletic shoes, boots, and accessories for the whole family in-store and online.
While some folks love ordering shoes online, I prefer walking into a shoe store to purchase footwear without the hassle of returns and delivery, but hey, to each his own.
As Rack Room Shoes prepares to open in September, we hope they have no issue hiring staff since the shrinking workforce continues to be an issue for employers in El Paso and across the country.
