Foot Locker To Buy CCS For $102 Million(CCS被收购)30 Sep 2008 ||
Hey kids, do you buy your decks and shoes from catalog giant CCS? Well, now you’ll be buying them from Foot Locker. The huge mall based shoe store is looking to “expand its offerings in the skateboarding apparel category” and has agreed to buy CCS for a cool $102 million. Not exactly chump change. We guess it will be a small price to pay in order to “help broaden its appeal to teenaged males”.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, PLEASE support your local privately owned skate shop. If and when skateboarding becomes anything less than a target market these shops will still be there supporting the scene. We’re guessing the 63 year old Foot Locker CEO who makes $1,500,000 a year couldn’t care less.
