JDR Shoe Warehouse, Cherry Hill

JDR Shoe Warehouse in Cherry Hill, NJ
As you probably are well aware, there is no shortage of places to shop for shoes these days, whether it's at a store or online.  Even a half-hearted shopper can stumble across a slew of boutiques, outlet stores, specialty shops, online sources, and more to buy some footwear.  Sometimes just choosing the place to shop is a tough decision in and of itself, let alone trying to decide what to buy!

One of the many options in footwear sales in South Jersey is JDR Shoe Warehouse, located just behind the Discovery Museum at 2040 Springdale Road, although technically the entrance is off of Pin Oak Lane or Olney Avenue.  It's easy to get to from Route 70, Route 73, and Route 295. Plenty of parking is available, though there can be spillover parking from the Discovery Museum when it gets busy there, but it's not usually a problem.

In any event, JDR specializes in selling big name brands at discounted prices.  There may not be a ton of product in stock for any given style, but generally they have a sampling of pretty much anything you could want at any given time, from dress shoes to sneakers to sandals and more.  The prices, when compared to other online stores, seem to match up well and often seem to beat other competitors.  To that end, I haven't seen them run special sales or other promotions, which leads me to believe that the everyday prices probably are equal to or lower than other stores so they don't need to discount further.

The store itself is very large and warehouse-like, as the name implies.  The associates who work there are friendly and keep the store in order, and they also stay out of your way unlike other stores where you have to talk to somebody in order to get the shoe you want from the stockroom.  This can be a good thing in the sense that you can float around at your own pace and easily pick out what you want to try on, but if you're looking for personal assistance or suggestions on what to buy, this probably isn't the place for you.

Interestingly, the store used to be open only on weekends, but increased demand meant that the store is now open daily.  In addition, they have also begun selling shoes online, so that may be a convenient option for many people as well. 

To learn more about the store, visit the JDR Shoe Warehouse site or call 856-751-6668. 

Happy shopping!
