In this economy, I think most folks are looking for bargains and ways to stretch their dollars. Some of us still want to buy what we want, i.e., designer, name brand, etc., but need to find them at bargain prices. Beaty Shoe Warehouse does this. Their stock appears to be liquidation stock from the Federated Group (i.e. Macy's, Dillards, etc.), consisting of shelf pulls, returns, display, etc. Some of the shoes have been pre-owned, but they clean them up very nicely and it's hard to tell on most of the shoes which ones are actually second-hand.
The prices are very reasonable on men's, women's and children's shoes. I spied a pair of Stuart Weitzman pumps for $29.99. They carry a fairly broad range of name brand shoes including, Nine West, Jessica Simpson, Steve Madden, New Balance. I didn't see any high end luxury designer brands, (Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Prada, Gucci, etc.), but they are catering to a more mainstream demographic.
Their store was very nicely laid out, brightly lit, clean and organized. It was a very pleasant shopping experience. As the other reviewer noted, they have their background music set on a Christian station, but it was not ""offensive"" or off-putting in the least. As a Christian, I found it refreshing that a business would take a stand for Christ in this small way. We DO still live in a country that allows business owners the freedom to choose what music they play.
All in all, if you love name brand designer shoes, but need to watch your pennies, Beaty Shoe Warehouse is a fabulous place for shoes at bargain prices.
