A new Shoe Dept. Encore store opened Saturday at Oak View Mall.

The new shoe store, located in the mall’s lower level near Younkers, offers a wide variety of shoes and price points.

“We carry all the brands. We have men’s, women’s and children’s shoes,” said Jeff Kress district manager for the Midwest, including Nebraska.

Shoe Dept. Encore, a division of Shoe Show Inc., based in Concord, N.C., is the company’s “superstore -- in terms of selection and brands. We’ve got more than 20,000 pairs of shoes,” Kress said.

The 18,000-square-foot store carries brands including Nike, Polo, Aerosoles, Clarks, Florsheim, Liz Claiborne, Nine West, Skechers, Nike, New Balance, Reebok, Polo, Aerosoles, Clarks, Columbia, Easy Spirit, Florsheim, Liz Claiborne, Nine West, Rockport, Rocky Boots, Skechers, Steve Madden, Timberland and Tommy Hilfiger.

This is the retailer’s second Nebraska location. The company opened a Shoe Dept. Encore in Lincoln two years ago.
