Rack Room Shoes will expand its corporate headquarters in Charlotte and relocate the headquarters of its subsidiary Off Broadway Shoes, from Georgia to Charlotte. The company is going to establish new retail stores and sales over the next five years. Currently, 49 of 450 stores are located in North Carolina. The main reasons for the decision to expand in Charlotte are the vibrant entertainment scene, growing fashion culture and the nearby international airport.
The expansion will create 87 jobs by the end of 2017 and invest $ 16.3 million in Charlotte. According to Mark Lardie, president and CEO of Rack Room Shoes and Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse, Charlotte is an excellent location to further collaboration. “Rack Room Shoes has grown with Charlotte over the years, and we are proud of all that the community and its residents have to offer” explains Lardie. “We’re excited to attract professionals in fashion, purchasing and marketing industries to Charlotte, knowing they will also be proud to call the city ‘home”.
und viele Grüße aus Charlotte
