Port Washington-based company to donate portion of sales to help those in need

PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. – In response to the historic flooding that is devastating communities throughout southern Wisconsin, Allen Edmonds has announced it will donate a portion of sales from its annual Tent Sale to benefit area victims hardest hit by the disaster.

“Allen Edmonds is a Wisconsin company through and through, and we couldn’t sit by and watch our friends and neighbors suffer,” Allen Edmonds President & CEO Mark Birmingham said today. “We want to do our part for the state and its citizens who have showed us so much support over the years.”

The annual Allen Edmonds Tent Sale will be held through Sunday, June 15 at the following locations:

Brookfield – on Bluemound Road behind Kopp’s Custard – (262) 785-6666
Hours: Friday 9AM-9PM, Saturday 9AM-7PM, Sunday 10AM-6PM

Port Washington – I-43 at Exit 100 – (262) 284-7158
Hours: Monday-Friday 8AM-8PM, Saturday 9AM-8PM, Sunday 9AM-6PM

Mequon–corner of Mequon and Port Washington Roads – (262) 241-4266
Hours: Friday 9AM-9PM, Saturday 9AM-7PM, Sunday 10AM-6PM

Allen Edmonds will also extend the Tent Sale at the Port Washington location only until Sunday, June 22. A portion of all sales during that time will be donated to flood victims.

From June 16-June 22, Allen Edmonds will also donate a portion of the proceeds from all in-store sales at its Mequon and Brookfield store locations.

Birmingham noted the opportunity to help Wisconsin flood victims coincided with its annual Tent Sale, an Allen Edmonds tradition since 1984. Birmingham added Allen Edmonds will assess the areas facing the most need and make the donations accordingly.

“The Tent Sale is an annual tradition for thousands of our customers. This year we’re proud to let them know that part of their purchase will go directly to help those struggling to recover from this disaster,” Birmingham said. “Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by the flooding. We hope that in some small way, Allen Edmonds can help bring a measure of comfort to those who are impacted most.”
