SAN ANTONIO-Shoe Show Inc., the country’s largest privately owned shoe retailer with stores in 30 states, is planning its first San Antonio store and has several more on the drawing board.

The store, one of the company’s Shoe Dept. concept shops, will be in a retail development at Rigsby Avenue and Loop 410 in San Antonio’s southeast submarket. The overall development includes a Wal-Mart supercenter store.

“I anticipate our opening five or six new stores in the future,” Koyt Everheart, a Shoe Show real estate executive, tells He didn’t have a timetable for the San Antonio expansion.

Shoe Dept. stores are between 4,000 sf and 7,000 sf and carry brand name footwear including athletic shoes. There are Shoe Dept. stores in Austin’s Barton Creek Square Mall and Lakeline Mall.

The Kannapolis, NC-based company’s other brands are Burlington Shoes stores, which are the same size at Shoe Dept. stores and located in outlet centers and malls, and Shoe Show stores, which lease sites ranging from 2,800 sf to 3,400 sf and carry popular-priced shoes.

Shoe Show has 800 stores, including 36 in Texas, in 30 states in the northeast, east, southeast and Midwest. Some of Shoe Show’s growth came from its acquisition of 80 Pic N’ Pay stores in the Southeast US in May 2000. In late 2000, Shoe Show more than doubled the size of its Kannapolis distribution center to more than 500,000 sf. Kannapolis is northeast of Charlotte, NC.
