Two Ten Footwear Foundation and the National Shoe Retailers Association have partnered to extend Two Ten’s services and financial assistance programs to U.S. independent footwear stores.
Under the new partnership, Waltham, Mass.-based Two Ten and Tucson, Ariz.-based NSRA will be able to coordinate development opportunities and events, and collaborate on service projects such as the Footwear Cares community service week.
“Our strategic partnership with NSRA allows us to better serve independent retailers and provide emergency financial assistance at times of crisis, college scholarships for employees and their children, and other social and career services,” Neal Newman, president of Two Ten, said in a statement.
“Two Ten is committed to strengthening America’s footwear community, and partnering with them simply makes good business sense. We are excited for the opportunity to present Two Ten’s benefits and programs to our members,” added NSRA President Chuck Schuyler.
