The Villages, FL (December 11, 2014) – Texas-based retailer and manufacturer of handcrafted leather shoes and accessories for women and men, San Antonio Shoemakers, opens a brand-new retail spot at The Villages, adding to the community’s premium lifestyle experience.
The store, located at 2757 Brownwood Boulevard, is now open for business in the Brownwood Paddock Square shopping center. The exquisite collection of shoes and handbags is complemented by an upscale design in a contemporary boutique setting. Shoppers can enjoy an 1,193 square foot showroom decorated with a cool blue accent wall, hardwood floors, grand white monument displays and of course, antique treasures which are sprinkled throughout to represent fine craftsmanship, the basis of the SAS shoemaking philosophy. SAS shoes are proudly handcrafted in the USA from fine leather and quality materials, available in a wide variety of sizes and widths for all-day comfort.
“Having a space in this retirement community is very exciting for SAS. This community offers the best of everything for their residents, and we’re grateful to offer our products, expertise and warm atmosphere to the flourishing development,” said SAS CEO Nancy Richardson.
A grand opening celebration is set for mid-January with in-store promotions to welcome residents. This new store is the fourth opened this year, which marks significant growth with more planned on the family-owned company’s trajectory. To date, SAS has 15 stores bearing the SAS name across Florida, giving the state an economic boost with job opportunities and healthy commerce.
In 1976, San Antonio Shoemakers (SAS) started a quiet revolution in footwear offering superb craftsmanship and extraordinary comfort. Co-founders Terry Armstrong and Lew Hayden countered a national trend of diminishing quality and cheap foreign manufacturing when they began making shoes that set a new standard in footwear. Today, the company still makes hand-crafted shoes in Texas to exacting standards with the very best materials available, making its own shoe forms so that it can offer an unparalleled fit—88 sizes for women and 104 for men—and astonishing comfort. Carried in 200+ SAS stores and in retailers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Korea, Kuwait, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Panama, Chile, Italy, Israel and England —the San Antonio Shoemakers brand is a humble American success story, and continues to be a family-owned enterprise driven by an obsession with fit and quality. Inspiring an ardent customer-base for decades, San Antonio Shoemakers continues to take extra steps, so customers can too.
