The cornerstone of our business - this channel of distribution puts our destiny in our own hands as it is the primary channel of distribution to reach our consumer. There is no better way for us to get our brand message out into the marketplace than through our own stores. We have over 125 stores located throughout 23+ states in malls, lifestyle centers and stand-alone stores.
This business unit is another key way we reach our consumer directly and is responsible for our catalog and online shopping solutions.
This is the core business on which Aerosoles was founded. It is responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with major department stores and independent retailers. The focus is on our highest price point brands and continues to give our business nation-wide exposure.
This business unit is responsible for selling to a wide variety of retailers, from mass market to discounters to private label for other footwear resources.
