New Shoes In The Village

News from the street:   Madison is turning into a full-service shoe store, while McCaulou’s shoe department is shutting down.  This news is connected because both locations are owned by long-time retailer David McCaulou.

Madison’s new shoes can be found at 2020 Mountain Avenue, replacing the women’s clothing there.  Soon you’ll find complete lines for men, women and children, along with nice handbags and wallets.  We watched McCaulou racing around the store and directing the transformation yesterday.  Assuming no snafus, he said the store should open this Saturday.

For years, Montclarions could buy shoes at McCaulou’s on Medau Place.  Their shoe department has been staffed by knowledgeable and attentive sales people, who even special order for you.  However the downstairs location always seems busy and cramped – and both problems are getting addressed now.

In Montclair, McCaulou’s and Madison offer essentials so you don’t have to traipse elsewhere.  There are nine McCaulou’s stores scattered throughout the North and East Bay, which keep the old-timey department store tradition alive and well.  Private owner David McCaulou also operates Madison, Hollyhock and David M. Brian shops.

At Today in Montclair. we’re unabashed Montclair Village boosters.  So remember to check out the newest entry as you make your local rounds.  We have a feeling that a good shoe store will be eagerly welcomed by villagers.
