Union Democrat staff

Famous Footwear will open its doors in The Junction shopping center starting on July 18, according to business representatives.

The 6,000-square-foot store will occupy the former McCloud's Pet Emporium building between T.J. Maxx and Kohl's.

The store will hold a grand opening event on July 28 beginning at 10 a.m., where the community is invited to celebrate with free shoe drawings every hour, giveaways and a DJ. One customer will win a shopping spree that will give them 30 seconds to run through the aisles and grab as many free pairs of shoes as possible.

"Our store will offer athletic, comfort and fashionfootwear styles, making it a one-stop shop for the whole family," said Latoya White, Famous Footwear spokesperson.

Tuolumne County Economic Development Authority Director Larry Cope said the store will expand local shopping choices and is expected to attract consumers from surrounding counties.

"This welcome addition to the community helps add to the momentum of economic development in Tuolumne County by offering residents more selection and a reason to shop locally," he said.

Famous Footwear carries more than 100 nationally recognized brands, including Nike, Naturalizer, Puma, Steve Madden, Converse, New Balance, DC, Rocket Dog and Carlos by Carlos Santana, in its retail stores and online store. The retailer also offers an assortment of fitness footwear including brands Skechers, Reebok, Avia and rykä. St. Louis-based Famous Footwear is owned by Brown Shoe Co.

McCloud's, one of the oldest tenants in The Junction, moved to a space next to the Fashion Bug, where Pure Cowboy and K-B Toys used to be.
