Bliss to open shoe store

Tori Mason Shoes, the latest in the Bliss family of retail stores, will open this summer in Market Square, downtown Knoxville, Tennessee.

“We are very excited about our newest concept. Bliss has carried shoes for several years, but embarking on this new adventure will give us the space to focus on offering a thoughtfully curated collection of shoes”, owner Lisa Sorensen notes.

“Reinventing the 29 Market Square location gives us the space to offer more, all while providing fun experiences for customers like a selfie area”, owner Scott Schimmel adds.
