We maintain 309,000 square feet of warehouse space at a leased facility in Mira Loma, California. See “Item 2. Properties.” In some cases, large customers may receive containers of footwear directly from the manufacturer. We ship by package express or truck from California, depending upon the size of order, customer location and availability of inventory. Distribution to European customers and certain other European distributors is based out of the public distribution facilities for the Netherlands and United Kingdom offices. We generally arrange shipment of other international orders directly from our independent manufacturers.

 

We maintain an open-stock inventory on certain products which permits us to ship to retailers on an “at-once” basis in response to orders placed by mail, fax, toll-free telephone call or electronically. We have made a significant investment in computer equipment that provides on-line capability to determine open-stock availability for shipment. Additionally, products can be ordered under our “futures” program. See “Marketing—Advertising and Promotion.”
