Enthusiastic shoppers gathered Thursday morning for the official grand opening of the Shoe Sensation store at the new Monett Marketplace strip mall on Highway 60.
Lauren Hicks, manager of the new Shoe Sensation store in Monett, cut the ribbon at a ceremony hosted for the occasion Thursday morning by the Monett Chamber of Commerce. Hicks said she has 17 employees at the store. The soft opening last week was the best in the company's history. On hand for the first day were Mickey Marsee, regional vice president for Shoe Sensation; Monica Curtis, area director, and Dave Schoengart, regional vice president.
