RECAP: 2017 NSRA Leadership Conference

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth at the National Shoe Retailers Association 2017 Leadership Conference last month in Memphis, Tennessee. We enjoyed meeting new people, as well as reconnecting with current customers. 

We were excited to hear that overall shoe retailers are feeling upbeat and optimistic about their brick-and-mortar businesses. According to this article by VAMP, staying on top of the competition by adding unique, new offerings and elevating the customer experience is working for shoe retailers. And with some shoe stores featuring 2nd- and even 3rd-generation owners, there is much to be hopeful about in the shoe industry.

One of our new product offerings that had people excited is our Custom Imprint Program. In addition to our imprinted plastic shoe horns, we now offer metal shoe horns and wooden shine brushes imprinted with a logo or store name. With low quantities and small runs, it’s an easy and economical way for shoe retailers to promote their shops and stand out from the competition. Download our Custom Imprint Program brochure here. 

Our experienced customer service department is here to help you help you grow your business. Reach out to us with questions about our imprint program—or let’s talk about other ways we can improve your customer experience.

RECAP: August footwear trade shows

August was a busy month with Justin Blair territory managers David Bryan and Dan Beal attending two footwear tradshows, Northwest Shoe Travelers 2017 Buying Market and Kansas City Shoe Show.

In addition to seeing our entire Ralyn Shoe Care line of professional shoe care products, customers were eager to see the Pedifix P17 display, a 2-sided countertop spinner that gives your customers fast and easy access to Pedifix foot care products.

Customers were also intrigued by the Orthosleeve FS6, a compression foot sleeve that helps reduce swelling, improve circulation, and relieve foot pain.
