PORT WASHINGTON, Wis., Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Allen Edmonds Shoe Corporation announces a national sales event called "Rediscover America" to help Americans get back to work. In partnership with over 400 authorized dealers across America, Allen Edmonds is offering a Rediscover America Collection of their finest shoes, belts and accessories.
"Classic American styling has resurfaced as men are getting more serious about their jobs and moving away from casual looks at work," said Paul Grangaard, President and CEO at Allen Edmonds. "As a result, we've been able to increase employment by over 120 people at our Port Washington, Wis. manufacturing facility since January 2010. Jobs have been created right here as a direct result of Americans buying quality American products."
Allen Edmonds continues to create jobs in America, as the company recently opened retail stores in Charlotte, S.C. and Reston, Va., and anticipates additional store openings in 2012.
Allen Edmonds products are being offered at the best prices of the year in company owned retail stores, online, and through participating Allen Edmonds dealers. The Rediscover America promotion started September 26 and runs through Columbus Day, October 11.
