From what I was told, the Tanger Outlets didn't renew the lease with AE for the Mebane store; same fate as the Charleston store.
I’m pretty sure Ashley has said as much here. She definitely told me that when we visited her store.

Still, it is a curious thing for an outlet mall to run off renters when so many stores are closing due to Covid or various other reasons.

Never say never. Strand King might have a tragic accident and will you his pairs! I make no comment on how or who may have caused said tragedy...
Too late. I'm trading in all my Strands so I can buy like 100 pairs of the new Freeport penny loafers with the thicc lug soles.

You guys are intelligent and funny at the same damn time. Don't get sidetracked. Outlet malls do NOT run off renters because new vendors are not easy to obtain.
It is simple. AE's lease renewal concerns revolve around AE Corporate/Caleres. AE Corporate/Caleres chose not to renew the lease. If you follow the money and productivity, you will find the answers.

Have a pair of 9D chocolate suede Higgins Mills from the suede trunk show listed in the AE BST thread if anyone's interested. Only a couple wears.

Seriously, who designs this trash and who decides that it's a good idea to actually develop and sell them for mass market? AE needs to rehire their design team. It's been miss and miss with the only semi-success being the Freeport.

I was told the same thing when I spoke to Charleston and Mebane - that the closing was caused by Tanger abruptly ending the lease, as opposed to a decision made by AE to close those stores.
Well that’s interesting.
Seems like odd behavior by a commercial space landlord in the age of covid, no? lots of empty commercial space going begging for tenants. And no open space down the street from either store? ??

Holy crap, you can get a loden Higgins for $195. :oops:
Kills me that this pair of Elgins are not my size. Someone should grab these 9Ds (not my listing)... they are a really nice pair at a fair price and are pretty darn tough to find. Still searching for a replacement pair for mine, sigh.


It seems like everything I want on Ebay and Poshmart is in 9 D. 9 D people are so fortunate. Speaking of great deals, some lucky 10 E person can these for $125 (not my listing).

9D is the shoe maker’s dream size. If they could they would ONLY make 9D.
