The local shoe store will be shutting down for good on June 28.
In a message to their loyal customers, Sprongs management officially announced they will be closing their Edina store on June 28.
Sprongs, which sells Z-Coil shoes designed to alleviate foot, leg and back pain, will be leaving its France Avenue home when its lease comes up late next month.
“Sprongs is closing after ten wonderful years of serving thousands of Minnesotans and people across the Midwest seeking comfort and relief from foot, leg and back pain,” Sprongs management wrote to customers. “We would like to thank each one of you for supporting Sprongs over the years!”
Back in March, Co-Owner Britt Molde told Patch they had decided to look at other available spaces and consider other options due to the high rent of the business district.
“Our lease just came up and it was going to be a lot more expensive if we signed,” Molde said. “I think rent has really gone up in the area.”
It doesn’t appear to be the end of the line for Sprongs itself, as the same message mentions plans to maintain a Sprongs footwear booth at the Minnesota State Fair this year.
“We are located on the second floor of the Grandstand,” management wrote to customers. “We will continue to update you via email and our website.”
Customers can continue to be fitted for and purchase Z-Coil and Joya shoes at the retail space through June 28, though management encourages interested buyers to shop early as styles and sizes will be limited. (Source: EdinaPatch)
