Idaho Falls's first building permit of '18: Shoe Dept. store remodel planned

This is Bizmojo Idaho's "first baby" story: The city of Idaho Falls has its first commercial permit application of 2018. I wish it was something more exciting, e.g. Dutch Bros. Coffee, it is instead a humble remodel of the Shoe Dept. Encore store in Grand Teton Mall.

According to the permit application, the space is 10,157 square feet and the project valuation (based on square footage) is $267,315. The store is located on the mall’s south side, directly across from The Buckle.

The store is owned by Shoe Show, Inc., a company founded in 1960 in Kannapolis, N.C. According to the company’s web site, it has 1,137 locations in 45 states, doing business as Shoe Show, Shoe Dept. and Burlington Shoes.

The permit application was filed Thursday with the Idaho Falls Building Department.
