A DSW Shoe Warehouse is expected to fill the vacancy left by Borders Books, according to Christine Brainerd, spokesperson for the City of Elk Grove.
Tell us what you think of that in the comments below this story.
DSW describes itself as a “shoe shopping destination for style-conscious women and men who appreciate value.” The stores are typically much larger than your average shoe store, which is embodied here by the fact that the chain would choose a large storefront like the former Borders location.
Back when Borders closed, we asked you what you would like to see replace it. We received 41 comments ranging from Barnes & Noble to Dave & Busters. There was no mention, however, of DSW or any other shoe store for that matter.
With that said, some Elk Grove Online commenters appear to be pretty excited about the store’s possible arrival. Others are concered that the warehouse store will squeeze out Famous Footwear and Payless.
