Fossee’s Shoes prepares to close after 31 years at the Preston-Forest Shopping Center

It wasn’t an easy decision, but Nancy Fossee knows it’s the right time to close Fossee’s Shoes.

“I’ve been here 31 years, and I guess it’s time to move on to something else,” she says.

The shoe, accessory and women’s clothing shop has been a Preston-Forest Shopping Center staple since 1986. Closing the store’s doors on July 31 is bittersweet, Fossee says, but she’s ready to take a leap of faith.

Fossee added she’s not retiring, although she hasn’t decided what her next endeavor will be.

“All of my customers have been absolutely wonderful. I’ll really miss my customers.”
