It certainly is better than another bank or drug store. Women love shoes. They should do very well. I could use another ten pair of shoes! LOL

I was happy to hear the news. Syosset needs a shoe store and I'm sure Syosset's DSW will stock the better brands, like the NYC locations. The parking lot is large enough to accommodate too. i can't wait.
