It’s that time of year again… the time when we get in our feels and fill up with the warm and fuzzies. On this day, we’re feeling so thankful that we might burst… then again, that might be the turkey talking.
We don’t often get the opportunity to gush over the great people who make Journeys everything that it is, and there seems no better occasion to do that than today. So, here are 5 Things We’re Thankful For this Thanksgiving.
1. Our Employees
We couldn’t do what we do without our amazing team! From the Journeys Distribution Center employees who make sure all the right product is in the right place, to the store employees who work face-to-face with customers and make the sales, to the Home Office employees who handle all of the in-between, everyone plays a major role.
Every member of our team has worked tirelessly to become an expert in their department, learning and perfecting new skills daily. All their efforts don’t go unnoticed, and we are extremely proud of the thousands of members of our big, loving, sometimes crazy Journeys fam.
2. Loyal Customers
You’ve got options when it comes to shopping for footwear fashion, so it means something that you keep coming back to us. Whether you’ve been loyal since day one or have just recently found the gem that is Journeys, we’re glad you’re here. We work every day to make sure you’ve got the best of the best from your favorite brands and are up to date on the latest trends.
3. Nonprofit Partners
Giving back to our stores’ local communities is vital to us, not just during the holidays but year-round as well. Our friends at nonprofits like Can’d Aid, The Trevor Project, Youth Villages, and so many more help us reach out to teens across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, and encourage them to grow, learn, and prosper.
4. Donations to Can’d Aid
If you didn’t know already, we’ve got Donate at the Register opportunities for Can’d Aid that will be running until December 24th! Whether you’ve already donated or are planning to as your holiday shopping picks up, we want you to know that you’re making a massive difference to kids across the country and even beyond U.S. borders.
If you can’t donate this year, we understand! You can still make a difference by checking out the organization and following its journey here.
5. Our Friend Karl Jacobs
Adding Karl into the Journeys mix has made it somehow an even better place to work and shop. As our Creative Ambassador, he has given us guidance on seasonal styles and tons of fun content. We even sponsored one of his latest streams, where he expressed a mutual love for our brand. In fact, he answered some of YOUR questions in one of our latest videos. Check it out!
And So Much More…
We hope you enjoy this holiday season with your family and soak in all the old traditions, new ones, and time with family and friends. Thanks for being such a huge part of our year and letting us be a part of your family, friend group, and wardrobe!
