The history of Foot Locker
Foot Locker is a footwear and sportswear seller that operates in about 20 countries, including in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. They have over 3,500 locations worldwide. 1,171 of those stores are in the United States. Foot Locker employs over 44,000 people.
The store's roots go back to 1963, when the Kinney Shoe Corporation was bought by F.W. Woolworth Company. By 1974, the first actual Foot Locker store was opened. Over the years, it became one of the top performing brands for the Woolworth company.
Foot Locker has also acquired different brands over the years, like Footaction USA and CCS, a store that speicalized in products for skateboarders and snowboarders. The most recent figures available show that their record annual turnover was $7.151 billion.
Foot Locker has had to implement a new policy to stop customers from literally running away with their shoes.
Many Foot Locker stores no longer allow customers to try on two shoes at one time - because they’d try on a pair of sneakers and dash out the store with the goods on their feet. The store only displays left shoes.
If a customer wants to see how both shoes feel on their feet, they’ll have to try the left shoe on, hand it back to the clerk, and then receive the right shoe in exchange to put on.
Still, tricky thieves have come up with a solution. Foot Locker manager Dayshorn Mickens explained, “They go here and they steal a left shoe. They go to Jimmy Jazz and steal the right.” (All Jimmy Jazz’s display shoes are right).
