The Warehouse Sale Pop-Up Shoe Shop in Former Mentor Giant Eagle until Sept. 1

By: Betsy Scott

In case your girlfriends haven’t told you, there are rows and rows of discounted shoes in the old Giant Eagle site on Plaza Boulevard.

And this deal won’t last.

The Warehouse Sale is a pop-up shop making its rounds around Ohio, at the moment. It opened Aug. 1 and runs until Sept. 1.

“We rely on word-of-mouth marketing to spread the news that we’re here so we really look for that interactive community,” said Marketing Manager Rachel Baileys.

The Warehouse Sale, started as an e-commerce business, also opened this summer in Beachwood.

“Opening a pop-up sale has allowed us to cut shipping costs, lowering our prices even more,” Baileys said. “We don’t have to pay rent year-round or set up and maintain an elaborate brick-and-mortar store.

The shops boast name-brand shoes for “40 to 80 percent off traditional retail prices.”

In addition, leasing large spaces allows the company to house more inventory than many retailers. Baileys estimates the sites can carry more than 20,000 pairs of shoes.

Another reason for pop-up popularity is the urgency it creates.

“It’s exciting,” Baileys said. “Because it’s temporary, it feels more like an event than it does a store.”

After the Mentor pop-up closes, it will be headed to Columbus and beyond.

“Mentor continues to attract all sorts of businesses because of its thriving retail economy and low vacancy rate,” Mentor Economic Development Director Kevin Malecek said.

“We continue to work with (Great Lakes plaza owner) ShopOne on other potential long-term tenants for the location.”

The Giant Eagle closed this year after the opening of a new one at the City Market development at routes 2 and 615.
