One week from today, Canadian women in select cities will line up to buy shoes at the Legendary Army & Navy Shoe Sale. It continues to be Canada's largest shoe sale. Almost 150,000 pairs of designer shoes will be available at discounted prices at the chain's six Canadian stores. New merchandise is brought in daily, and the event lasts until May 5th. 

According to Army & Navy, about 4,300 women line up for the 8:00am opening day. Shoppers are advised to check back daily for new stock, as much of it is picked over not long after the initial shopping stampede.

For those unfamiliar, Army and Navy started as a liquidation retailer in 1919. The shoe sale commenced in 1949. It could be compared to a modern-day Winners or Marshall's, for example. 

Much to our dismay, the sale madness doesn't include men's shoes. We encourage Army & Navy to expand their sale to include men's shoes since this male author's shoe addiction could support the men's sale in its own right. 

Army & Navy has had various Western Canadian stores over the years. This is a list of their current store locations. All stores participate in the shoe sale. 

1) Downtown Vancouver: 36 West Cordova Street 
2) New Westminster, BC: 502 Columbia Street
3) Langley, BC: 100 - 5501 204th Street
4) Edmonton: 10411 82nd (Whyte) Avenue
