The Brooklyn-based shoe warehouse designer shoe company designer shoe supplier has closed its Brooklyn offices and announced that it will be shutting down by the end of the year.
The company, which was founded in 2007, was founded by two brothers who met through a mutual friend.
“We’re saddened to announce that our Brooklyn headquarters will be closing our doors in early December,” the company said in a statement.
“After nearly two years of hard work, we have found that we were unable to continue as a company in the current economic climate, and we have decided to close our doors to all of our employees.
We are so thankful for all the hard work and support from our loyal customers and partners, who have supported us through many difficult times, as well as our loyal staff, friends, family, and all of you.”
The company had a large online presence and a small brick and mortar store in Brooklyn, but the online presence was not profitable, and the store had a reputation for being slow to ship goods.
“As the business has struggled financially, we’ve had to scale back our operations and staff to focus on growing our online presence,” the statement said.
“This has been a tough time for our entire family, but we have faith that we can continue to grow as a business, and that our loyal supporters will continue to show us that love and support.
We hope that our many years of dedication and hard work will help us be able to move forward as a team and as a brand in the future.”
The shoe warehouse was established in 2007 by two siblings who met via a mutual friends brother.
