Now Open: Charlotte Premium Outlets

Now Open: Charlotte Premium Outlets

We’ve opened a new store in our own backyard. With several stores located in and around the Charlotte area, this may not sound like big news, but it kind of is for two reasons. One, while there are many locations in and around Charlotte, this is first new store Rack Room Shoes has opened in several years. The company has been busy expanding the business, turning focus into new U.S. areas and regions. Two, the new center, Charlotte Premium Outlets, is the first and only large-scale outlet center with an actual Charlotte address. The center boasts 100 designer and brand name stores, saving customers 25% – 65% every day. If you’re in the Charlotte Premium Outlet neighborhood, then please, step in and say hello!





A crowd of shoppers gathers for the Grand Opening Event, which featured free gifts to the first 100 families, including free shoes for a year.

Known as an innovator in the shoe industry for more than 80 years, Rack Room Shoes has earned the respect of its customers, vendors, landlords and other retailers. By offering the best selection, brands, service, convenience and value, Rack Room Shoes remains poised for great achievements in the years to come. Great shoes for men, women and children in comfort, dress, casual, and athletic categories make Rack Room Shoes the family footwear retailer of choice. The company offers a wide selection of nationally recognized brands known for their quality. Rack Room Shoes also offers an assortment of exclusive private brands commissioned from the best manufacturers in the business. These private brands offer the customer great styles and outstanding values, which translates into satisfied, loyal, repeat customers. The foundation for Rack Room Shoes was established in 1920 in Salisbury, North Carolina by Phil Levinson, and later passed on to his son-in-law, Mort Lerner. The period from 1920 until 1984 was one of modest growth. However, in 1984, the 22-store company was purchased by The Deichmann Group, a Germany- based shoe retailer, beginning a period of accelerated growth and infrastructure modernization. By 1990, Rack Room Shoes was operating 100 stores and just 4 years later the 200th store opened. In 1995, the company relocated its United States headquarters to a 72,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. Over the next ten years the Rack Room Shoes chain doubled in size, with locations in 24 states from New Jersey to the tip of Florida to the California borders.

      Hi Janice! Thanks for reaching out. We are currently working to add ecommerce capabilities to our website, so as of right now we do not offer online ordering. We do, however, have the Nike style you mentioned, which can be found on our Men’s Nike page or here. If you are able to get to a store but do not find the exact style or size 7 at that location then please note that we offer a Ship To Home service, wherein we fill find the shoe you want and mail it to your home. I hope this information helps, thanks so much for viewing The Shoe Box.
