Shoe Box closing one store, expanding flagship

The Shoe Box in Black Earth is planning to expand, but its Baraboo store, at the corner of Hwy. 12 and Hwy. 33, will close soon. The store had a Baraboo presence for 20 years and was the town’s only dedicated shoe store, although other retailers in the area also sell shoes.

In Black Earth, The Shoe Box is erecting a two-story, 6,500-square-foot building across the street from the flagship store. It will include storage space and a new second-level Bargain Box area that will reduce congestion at the main store.
