With people flocking to lower-priced fast food restaurants during these tough economic times, footwear retailer Shoes for Crews has been the happy recipient of growing shoe sales as a burgeoning fast food industry clamors for slip-resistant footwear.
Sales in the first quarter for the company have increased by 10%, while catalog circulation has also risen close to the same percentages, increasing by 9% during the same time period.
Utilitarian, cheap and boring are the new sexy during economic downturns, and sales at Shoes for Crews confirms this reality.
