FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 8, 2013 – John Fluevog Shoes
After a hundred years, John Fluevog finally found the perfect retail space to return his namesake back to Minnesota, and is now coming back to celebrate its opening with the greatest Fluevogian Party ever held in Minneapolis! On April 4th, John and fellow-Fluevoging Minneapolitans will join together in the gorgeous Fluevog space in the heritage Uptown Theatre at the corner of Hennepin and Lagoon Avenues to celebrate the opening of John Fluevog Minneapolis!
Minneapolis had long been a target city for John Fluevog Shoes as it has always held a special place in John’s heart. John’s new Minneapolis retail space is in the restored and recently-reopened heritage Uptown Theatre, which is celebrating its hundredth birthday! Reflecting John’s positive and bright messages, the space is completely Fluevogified with art-deco inspired furniture with teak panels sharing the same colour schemes as the original Uptown Theatre, perfect for a relaxing shopping experience among the most unique shoes in the World. (There is also a rumor that John has plans to be a mystery actor during one of the midnight Rocky Horror performances at The Uptown.)
It certainly won’t be long now, and we can’t wait to see you there on Thursday, April 4th!!
