29th Place

Barracks Road Shopping Center

One thing’s for sure: You folks like choices. DSW, which opened this past spring in 29th Place (formerly Shoppers World Court), provides shoe shoppers with plenty of options and steps into the winners’ circle for the first time this year. Scarpa, in Barracks Road Shopping Center, takes the runner-up spot, providing a carefully curated collection of designer shoes and a personal interaction with customers that you won’t find at the big-box winner.
