In America People Are Getting Married in Department Store Shoe Aisles

Print comment Post Comments
TJX Companies Inc. (TJX) is trading higher this morning, a result of the high the company's still on after the magical wedding ceremony that took place this past Saturday in a size-8 shoe aisle in their Mt. Pleasant, Michigan store.

Yes, in America people are getting married in department store shoe aisles. It's what we do.

Drew Ellis and Lisa Satayut exchanged vows at the department store in a widened shoe aisle under a vine-covered arch as a violinist played and guests looked on from white chairs outfitted in red bows. “Shoppers still shopped -- only the shoe department was closed -- while some leaned on their carts to pause from their search through the clearance racks and watch the goings on,” reported the Morning Sun.

Spokeswoman from the Boston corporate offices Sonya Cosentini said she couldn’t resist Satayut’s request to wed in front of the stores deeply discounted footwear: “This is very exciting. We never had a wedding in a TJ Maxx store before.”

The wedding reportedly took three months to plan, but apparently had been the bride’s dream for much longer than that. (No insight provided as to why.) After it was over, Satayut explained the trick to getting through the ceremony in one piece: “I never once looked at the shoes. I just concentrated on Drew. I didn’t even think about shoes.” The bride wore green gladiator-style sandals.

And then the world came to an end.
