Atlanta Shoe Market weathers the storm.
A state of emergency had been declared. No flights in or out. Highways clogged with abandoned vehicles. Sounds like an episode of The Walking Dead, right? But it was the stark reality leading up to last week’s Atlanta Shoe Market, the semi-annual show which was celebrating its 70th anniversary. But as paralyzed as Atlanta was by the forbidding ice storm, the turnout was testimony to the grit of the people scheduled to attend.
