NILES — Reyers Shoe Store will celebrate the opening of its new location at Eastwood Mall with a shoelace-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. Thursday.

Customers will have a chance to win $10,000 worth of free shoes and other prizes throughout the grand opening weekend. One hundred gift cards worth $100 each will be awarded (one entry per customer per day). 

Mark Jubelirer, Reyers Shoe Store president, said the decision to move the store from Sharon, Pa., was made "with a heavy heart."

"Our large footprint here [in Sharon] is geared to a bigger volume than we're able to maintain. We've seen this coming for several years now," he told Mahoning Matters in May.

The new 14,000-square-foot store, located in the JCPenney Concourse of the mall, is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.
