Woman Buys Out Entire Shoe Store So She Can Donate 204 Pairs to Nebraska Flood Victims

Image result for Woman Buys Out Entire Shoe Store So She Can Donate 204 Pairs to Nebraska Flood VictimsA 25-year-old woman just bought the entire stock of a closing shoe store so she could donate it all to Nebraska flood victims.

Earlier this week, college graduate Addy Tritt bought 204 pairs of new shoes from the Payless Shoe Store in Hays, Kansas.

Since Payless announced that they were going out of business in February, the company has been liquidating its assets in all 2,100 of its stores.

Upon hearing about the store’s closing, Tritt felt compelled to visit the branch so she could buy some shoes for the flood victims in Nebraska.

The store’s remaining shoes – which included 162 pairs of baby shoes, 44 pairs of women’s, and 2 pairs of men’s – were collectively worth about $6,000 retail. After about two and a half hours of negotiation, however, Tritt managed to buy all of the shoes for only $100.

“I have been so blessed. There have been so many great people in my life who have inspired me,” she told Hays Post. “So many people have helped me when I was down, I want to help if I can.

“I just hope this inspires other people to volunteer and donate if you have been blessed,” she added.

Streetwear Designer Benny Gold Closes His Store and Heads to Goodby, Silverstein & Partners

Over the past 15 years, Benny Gold became one of the premier streetwear designers in San Francisco by parlaying his fame as a skateboarder into his own eponymous brand of shirts, hats and outerwear. His flagship Valenica Street shop became a tourist destination and mainstay of the city’s historic Mission District.

But this week, Gold surprised the Bay Area skate community and his thousands of social media followers with the news that he would be closing the store and ending most production on the brand.

Why? To make a midcareer pivot to advertising.

Gold has joined Goodby Silverstein & Partners as a designer. He will report to award-winning GS&P design director Ryan Self, who is himself a recent transplant from MullenLowe London having joined the Omnicom agency in a wave of 2018 hires following new business wins including Pepsi, BMW and Liberty Mutual.

In a statement to Hypebeast that was republished as a personal letter to followers this week, Gold wrote that he made the move primarily to take on new creative challenges.

“I would rather bring [the brand] to a close and celebrate it’s life with integrity rather than push it to become something I no longer believe in,” the note read. Gold added, “I am a graphic artist at heart and all I’ve ever wanted to do is create meaningful things, which is why I’m thrilled to join GS&P.”

The brand will not disappear, however, even if the recently released line will be its last full collection.

The Benny Gold digital store will live on as its founder continues to produce limited-edition specialty products.

Gold’s best-known designs among skate and sneaker aficionados include the 2006 Nike “Huf quake” series, which was created to commemorate the centennial of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, as well as logos for streetwear publisher Highsnobiety and coffee brand Four Barrel.

Beyond Nike, Gold has produced work for brands including Adidas, Teva, JanSport, Red Wing Shoes and Miller High Life.

“As a fan of graffiti art, I’ve admired Benny’s work over the years,” said GS&P chief creative officer Margaret Johnson. “He will immediately bring an incredible artistic dimension and intimate understanding of urban culture to GS&P.”
