Now that my daughters are wearing adult sized shoes (and they are only 9 and 11!), back to school shoe shopping is getting expensive. In addition to having to buy school supplies, clothes, and book rental, each girl needs both athletic shoes and dress shoes. Plus, they want the cool, stylish shoes. On the flip side, I want brands that I know will hold up through the winter so that we don't have to buy new ones again in a couple of months.
Thankfully, we live very close to a Famous Footwear. The store is just the right size that there are enough choices to provide variety but not so many that we spend all day in there. I can quickly check the kids' section for my 9-year-old to see if there is anything in her size and then start moving into the adult section if we do not find anything. I will admit that my favorite time to shop there is when they are running their promotions (pretty much the only time that I shop anywhere!). And right now they are running a BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon. That works perfectly for me because I almost always need to buy 2 or 4 pair at a time with 2 kids. If I don't, I get a pair for myself! You can print that coupon and use it in-store from August 2-18.
Another thing that I love about Famous Footwear is that if they do not have the size of shoe that you need in the store, you can order it online and have it delivered to the store for you for free. And did I mention the Rewards Program? I just recently joined. You get a special discount just for signing up plus you accumulate rewards throughout the year to earn certificates to spend in the store. It's a great reason to be a loyal customer. And now is the perfect time to join because that 15% off coupon I mentioned above becomes a 20% off coupon if you are already a Rewards member or sign up to become one!
With just a week left until school here, we are in full Back to School mode and shoes are one of the last things on my list but something I know I absolutely need to get. If only there were a "Famous Footwear" type place for all of the other stuff that I need to get done!
