The foundation for Rack Room Shoes was established in 1920 in Salisbury, North Carolina by Phil Levinson, and later passed on to his son-in-law, Mort Lerner. The period from 1920 until 1984 was one of modest growth. However, in 1984, the 22-store company was purchased by The Deichmann Group, a Germany-based shoe retailer, beginning a period of accelerated growth and infrastructure modernization.
By 1990, Rack Room Shoes was operating 100 stores and just 4 years later the 200th store opened. In 1995, the company relocated its United States headquarters to a 72,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. Over the next ten years the Rack Room Shoes chain doubled in size, with locations in 24 states from New Jersey to the tip of Florida to the California borders.
Known as an innovator in the shoe industry for more than 80 years, Rack Room Shoes has earned the respect of its customers, vendors, landlords and other retailers. By offering the best selection, brands, service, convenience and value, Rack Room Shoes remains poised for great achievements in the years to come.
