27 Aug Foot Locker Opens Community Power Store In Compton
Foot Locker announced the grand opening of its first West Coast community-based Power Store in Compton, CA. The 12,800- square-foot store is scheduled for August 26.
“As part of our commitment to bring the best-localized expression of Foot Locker to consumers, we are excited to expand our Power Store model to the West Coast with a new location in Compton,” said Bryon Milburn, SVP and GM of Foot Locker U.S. “Compton is a passionate market for sneaker culture, and we look forward to creating immersive brand connections from the local store staff, to the in-store experiences and products we offer.”
In support of the Compton and the surrounding communities, Foot Locker has committed to hiring local by partnering with the City of Compton to recruit talent within a five-mile radius of the store. The brand also engaged two local artists, to design artwork for the interior and exterior of the store, as well as hosting neighborhood clean-ups and maintaining a community garden.
To further Foot Locker’s “Home Grown” hyper-local product initiative, the store will also offer a curated group of local brands Foot Locker has partnered with to sell exclusive and limited-release products.
