An excited group of local residents, the Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce, and Mayor Bob Beussman were on hand to celebrate the ribbon cutting of the Shoe Sensation store located at 1704 Westridge Road. Shoe Sensation is a regional chain of family shoe stores selling quality name brand shoes. They carry a large selection of men’s, women’s, children’s casual, dress, athletic, work, and sport footwear. They have 172 store locations and plans to open 9 more this year. CEO Dave Schoengart, who came to New Ulm for the ribbon cutting and grand opening, said they look for towns that have small town feel and a lot of community support to put their stores in. He and the staff at New Ulm’s Shoe Sensation said they are impressed with how welcoming the community has been and all the help they have gotten from the Chamber in getting ready to open. Congratulations, Shoe Sensation! We’re glad you’re here!
