Our friends at Retail-Insider are reporting that The Shoe Company will open a chain of Large-scale discount shoe stores, similar to the American chain DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse.

Although we’ve reported that DSW is planning on coming to Canada, sources say that this new The Shoe Company project will be very comparable to DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse. If you’ve never heard of DSW you can get the scoop from our blog post earlier. 

It’s obvious that this new project will face stiff competition once the likes of Nordstrom Rack and Off 5th by Saks Fifth Avenue open. 

Although we aren’t 100% sure how this will differ from existing The Shoe Company locations, but expect better brand names, and a wider selection. 

We will keep you posted as news unfolds.
