An Unexpected Shoe Retailer is Now Closing in Florida

An unexpected shoe retailer is now closing in Florida after 36 years in business, triggering sales up to 50% off items.

Sesame Step located in Miami, Florida, announced the closure on Wednesday.

“Store closing 50% off entire inventory,” a post on Sesame Step’s Instagram said.

The store sells name-brand kids’ shoes and always promises to deliver quality products.

“Sesame Step Children’s Shoes has been a memorable location for children and parents for 35 years.

Named Best Kids Shoe Store by New Times and South Florida Parenting, Sesame Step is no ordinary shoe store,” a petition from 2022 read about Sesame Step.

“They are known for their exquisite inventory, elevated level of customer care and their attention to detail.”

The retailer released a petition at the time due to Nike notifying small businesses that it would no longer be supplying them with their brand.

Sesame Step was worried at the time about how this would affect their business.

A post on its Facebook suggested the change could cause the store to shut down.

“Help Sesame Step keep its doors open. Please sign and share. Thank you,” the retailer said in a 2022 post.

Customers did not seem happy about the change as well.

Some of them chimed in on the petition to share their concerns.

“I don’t want to take my kids to a NIKE Outlet or NIKE Factory Store where the selection and sizes are limited.

I recently visited a NIKE Factory store location and spent most of my time searching for sizes and styles that weren’t even in right location,” a Sesame Step customer said in the petition.

“All this while pushing a stroller and holding on to my toddler.

I also don’t want to shop online taking a wild guess at what size my kids are and wondering if the shoe will be comfortable.

I wish to continue to shop for my favorite brands while getting the best one to one service that my children and I deserve.”

An unexpected restaurant now abruptly closes 7 locations in one state after revealing plans to shutter a total of 36.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.
