Our Story

"Hi and thank you for the part you've played in our 75 years of providing shoes to Southern Minnesota! We carry quality, name brand footwear for the entire family. Be it for work, casual or dress... we'll measure your feet for a perfect fit - every time."

-Tom Brick (Owner 1977-Present)

Owatonna Shoe Co. was opened in 1946, with Jim Brick as one of the first clerks, and who later became the owner in 1967. The store has always been located at 121 N. Cedar Ave. In 1981, the store expanded to create a larger space for increasing inventory and customers. Tom Brick bought the business from his father in 1977 and has owned it ever since. In 2021, Owatonna Shoe celebrated it's 75th anniversary!
Owatonna Shoe is a specialty store; there are not many stores like ours around anymore. We take pride in our ability to measure your feet accurately and listen to our customers wants and needs. We carry a large selection of men's, women's, kids, and industrial, shoes and accessories.
