Waxberg's Walk Shoppe Is Excited to Approach 100 Years in Business
Third-Generation Family Shoe Store Gets Ready to Celebrate 100th Anniversary
NILES, Ill., September 19, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Waxberg’s Walk Shoppe, a third-generation family shoe store, is excited to approach 100 years in business.
Waxberg’s Walk Shoppe has been in business since 1919, starting with Isaac Waxberg (the current owner’s grandfather), who had his roots as a cobbler in Germany before moving to Chicago and opening what has now become Waxberg’s Walk Shoppe.
At Waxberg's, we would rather not make a sale, than let you walk out with something we feel is not right for you.
Ron Waxberg, Owner
Typically, department stores and other shoe stores do not take the time to learn about their customer’s specific needs when it comes to their shoes. “We are proud to be one of the few stores left that takes the time to sit and fit,” said Ron Waxberg, Owner at Waxberg’s Walk Shoppe. At Waxberg’s, they properly measure both feet sitting and standing. They also assess the foot shape and arch type. “This is so that we can make the best recommendations based on our conclusions.”
Waxberg’s goal is to keep their stock of shoes available in every size and width for their customers. In addition, they stock many other items related to shoe comfort and longevity. Many different types of over-the-counter orthotics (inserts) and gel or moleskin accommodating foot products in order to alleviate pressure or pain are available. To preserve footwear, they also carry a variety of shoe care products such as mink oil, suede renew, water and stain protector, polish, leather conditioner, Venetian Cream, Sno Seal, and more.
“At Waxberg’s, we would rather not make a sale, than let you walk out with something we feel is not right for you,” continued Waxberg. “We look forward to another 100 years in business!”
