(OTCBB:GAMR) has been selected to handle the liquidation of Bakers Footwear Group, Inc., offering discounts for products in 56 of Bakers Footwear Groups’ remaining stores, as well as online at www.bakersshoes.com . “We are offering significant discounts online and on all store items, so consumers will have the opportunity to purchase quality, name-brand women’s shoes at steep discounts,” said Scott Carpenter, President of Great American Group’s Retail Division.
