About US

In 1960, a small footwear store opened its doors in Kannapolis, North Carolina, with a simple mission: to provide quality products, exceptional service, and great value. That store was the first SHOE DEPT, and it laid the foundation for what would become a footwear retail leader in the United States.

Over the past 63 years, SHOE DEPT has maintained its formula for success, offering branded footwear, bags, and accessories for the entire family. The company’s commitment to technological advances and operating efficiencies has been key to its growth, with initiatives like standardized store designs, an efficient distribution center, and computer links with stores and vendors.

Today, SHOE DEPT’s headquarters and distribution center are located in Concord, North Carolina, but the brand’s reach extends far beyond its home state. With a focus on providing quality products and exceptional customer service, SHOE DEPT has become a trusted name in footwear retail across the country.

But SHOE DEPT’s legacy goes beyond its business achievements. The company recognizes the importance of giving back to the communities it serves, and it actively supports numerous charitable causes. From partnering with organizations like Cooperative Christian Ministries, Salvation Army, and Hospice and Palliative Care of Cabarrus County, to supporting vocational opportunities and educational institutions, SHOE DEPT is dedicated to making a positive impact.

As SHOE DEPT celebrates over six decades of success, its story serves as a testament to the power of a simple formula: quality, service, and value. With a commitment to innovation and community engagement, this footwear retailer continues to leave its mark, one step at a time.
