Celebrating its 70th anniversary, Baron’s Shoes, 3101 W. 111th St., has served four generations of local families who shop at the family-owned business because it fits perfectly with their need for quality merchandise and good old-fashioned customer service.
With a large selection of shoes, boots and other footwear, Baron’s Shoes carries a variety of styles from top brands like Stride Rite, Hush Puppies and Daniel Green. From baby shoes to house slippers to children’s, men’s and women’s shoes, Baron’s has it all.
Independent shoe stores face many competitive challenges these days, but Baron’s Shoes stays with what it knows: great shoes at a great price, right in the neighborhood.
Every member of the family can find quality and comfort at Baron’s Shoes. It provides a wide selection of quality brand-name shoes and boots designed with current styles in mind for men, women and children.
The selection for adults at Baron’s offers sizes from AA to EEEEE.
For special shoes, Baron’s also offers one of the area’s most complete lines of orthopedic shoes that don’t neglect style for comfort. And it has specialty shoes such as ballet, tap or crib shoes. It also sells house slippers, boots, socks and accessories.
For kids, Baron’s has sizes to fit the tiniest feet of an infant or the growing feet of boys and girls. Baron’s keeps a progress chart of each of their young customers that tracks the date and size of the youngster’s foot and then sends out reminder cards after three months to ensure that the shoes keep up with the growth of the child’s foot. People won’t find that type of service anywhere else.
Such personal service makes people feel at home and like family. It’s no wonder that Baron’s Shoes has served four generations of customers.
Darlene takes special pride in being part of the lives of many families.
