We've decided to call it curtains on our store at the King of Prussia Mall.
It's been a fun two years, but it goes without saying that the events of the past year have made operating a mall store exceptionally challenging. And quite frankly, we've done so much better at online sales over the past year that we would rather focus our attention there than on hoping for a turnaround at the mall. So we've decided to readjust our game plan, and put our energy into further improving the online experience.
One of the things that was keeping us at KOP was how much we liked our manager, Glenn, and we're thrilled to report that he's going to be coming to work for us in Center City.
We are not giving up on the suburbs by any stretch of the imagination. We have already started to look at other potential landing spots, so who knows what the future holds.
But we want to say thank you to everyone who has shopped with us over the past two years at KOP, and remind you that all of our unique products will still be available at our store at 13th & Walnut in Center City and online at shibesports.com (we'll also handle any exchanges and honor any gift cards through both). Our final day of operation at the KOP Mall will be today, April 30th.
Thanks, and we hope to see you at our Center City store soon!
- Johnny and Brian
