Journeys Kidz, a one of a kind footwear retail concept targeting the "tween" customer ages 8 to 12, opened it doors on February 10, 2001 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Journeys Kidz is an exciting extension of Genesco's highly successful Journeys stores concept, one of the nation's hottest teen and young adult footwear retail destinations. The store offers the same popular footwear brands offered in a Journeys store, but in a more parent/child friendly environment. Aisles have been widened, displays are smaller in scale and are positioned lower, and the store's music videos and visual merchandising are geared to the younger customer. In fact, Playstation 2 terminals featuring exciting new video games for kids to demo for free are part of the Journeys Kidz shopping experience.
Journeys Kidz was an unparalleled selection of footwear brands including Skechers, DC, Candie's, Nike, Converse, Timberland, Dr. Martens, K-Swiss and others. Journeys Kidz also carries t-shirts and accessories.
Journeys Kidz now has more than 150 locations across the United States.
