Family footwear retailer Rack Room Shoes opens in Grand Central Place on July 21

Somerset, Ky., 2016-Jul-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — Family footwear retailer Rack Room Shoes will open the doors to its newest location on Thursday, July 21, in Grand Central Place, located off U.S. Highway 27. The retailer, known for its daily “Buy One Get One 50 Percent Off” promotion, will offer an extensive selection of brand name shoes at value prices in its new 5,700 square-foot store.

To celebrate its inaugural Somerset location, Rack Room Shoes is presenting shoppers with exclusive sales offers, deals and giveaways throughout the weekend

 The first 50 customers in-store on Thursday and Saturday will receive a gift bag with a $10 store credit to use on the retailer’s wide offering.

 Shoppers who sign up for the Rack Room Rewards program, during the grand opening weekend, will also receive an instant $5 off their purchase.

“There is a great need for a leading footwear retailer in Somerset,” said Regional Manager Shawn Brooks. “With the new school year just around the corner, our customers can enjoy a one-stop destination to get their favorite brands of men’s, women’s and children’s footwear – accompanied by great prices and excellent customer service.”

Additionally, Rack Room Shoes will host its annual Shoes That Fit campaign, empowering its customers to make a real difference in their community. During the retailer’s Back to School event, which extends through mid-September, customers can make an in-store donation to help purchase new shoes for at-risk children in Somerset. The retailer will match every donation, up to $300,000, and funnel 100 percent of the proceeds back into area school systems through its partnerships with local school liaisons.

“While Back to School is an exciting time for many children, we recognize that it can present great challenges for those with limited resources. We look forward to partnering with the residents of Somerset to benefit families in need,” said Brooks.

Store hours for Rack Room Shoes are Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday, 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
