Two locally owned shoe stores will be set to open Dec. 15 in The Mall at University Town Center.
Natural Comfort and Footgear Outdoor will be opening stores on the first level near Saks Fifth Avenue, according to store employees. The stores are looking to fill five sales positions for each store as well.
The stores are owned and operated by Jim Atkinson who maintains a Natural Comfort location on St. Armands and is bringing back Footgear Outdoor after closing on St. Armands.
The Footgear store will also have a Sperry Top-Sider shop-within-a-shop as well.
Resumes can be sent to Atkinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Christopher Agresta at 941-388-1228 or Atkinson at 941-388-1735 between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
