(shoo) has expanded its Milwaukee location in the Historic Third Ward by adding 1,000 square feet at 241 N. Broadway. The space most recently housed the Katie Gingrass Gallery.
"In doing so, we have expanded our assortment of shoes and have added many new brands, like Marc Joseph, Yosi Samra, Chocolate Blu, Sebago, Mel, Inouvo, Chio, Superga, & Sorel," said co-owner Kate Blake.
"With this growth, we are able to carry more depth of our brands, by adding many more colors in a style. This is really a very exciting opportunity to show case more of the great brands that we have carried the last 7 years," added Blake.
In addition, (shoo) and its next door retailer, 3rd Ward Jewelry, will soon welcome Sachen Contemporary Imports into the remainder of its retail space.
Sachen is moving from 320 E. Buffalo St. where they have been for the last two years. Sachen will relocate at the end of May.
"We are very excited for this opportunity to live with Sachen in our great little space here on Broadway," added Blake.
Sachen carries a variety of items from toys to home wares. Its name is German for "things."
