The Pedestrian Shops has opened its third location at 15th and Platte streets in the Central Platte Valley.
The family-owned footwear retailer, which has two shops in Boulder, is hosting a grand-opening celebration through April 22. The celebration includes giveaways, gifts with purchases and special events.
“We’ve always been interested in opening a store in Denver,” says Richard Polk, Pedestrian Shops’ president and founder. “It took us over 40 years to find the perfect location.”
The Pedestrian Shops offers a selection of comfortable shoes. Popular brands include Birkenstock, Dansko, Keen, Merrell, Vionic, Chaco, Lems and Naot.
Coinciding with the grand opening is Pedestrian Shops’ annual Earth Day Shoe Drive. This Earth Day marks the 59th shoe drive — a second is held annually at Thanksgiving. Customers are asked to bring in footwear that they never wear — any kind, any brand, new or slightly used. Donors are offered a 10 percent discount on a new pair of shoes. Donated shoes are distributed to local assistance organizations. Donations will be accepted at all three pedestrian Shops through April 29.
The new Denver store is located at 2368 Platte St. In Boulder, the stores are located on the Pearl Street Mall and in the Village Shopping Center near McGuckin Hardware.
