The public is invited to attend a grand opening celebration of Fort Myers’ first Red Wing store at 11150 S Cleveland Ave, Fort Myers, Fla. on Friday and Saturday, April 7 and 8. Enjoy exclusive savings on the largest selection of work footwear in Lee County during the two-day event at this local veteran-owned business.
Customers who shop at the Fort Myers location are greeted by a certified fit specialist who is trained to ensure customers get the best fit possible for both feet and work environment. Customers also receive complimentary boot checkups, cleaning and conditioning, along with replacement laces for the life of the Red Wing footwear. Red Wing devotees and any workers who are on their feet during the course of their job will discover the latest in Red Wing work products, including purpose-built footwear from the Red Wing brand plus products from the company’s WORX and Irish Setter lines and the Red Wing Heritage collection.
Owner Edgar Harris, a retired veteran of the Marine Corps who proudly served for 22 years, was inspired to open his own Red Wing store after his long time military friend’s endeavor into a Red Wing store in Louisiana met with success. Since opening, Harris has already discovered a hard-working Lee County customer base that appreciates this local source for the quality products they need and deserve. Red Wing designs and constructs shoes and boots that stand the test of time, serving the construction, medical, foodservice and sanitation industries and many more.
Harris said, “Everyone deserves to have comfortable shoes that are built to last and protect your feet. Once customers buy their first pair of Red Wing shoes, they are certain to become loyal customers for life.” Harris, who holds a Florida Veteran & Minority Business Certification, plans to expand the Red Wings brand and open more stores in the year ahead, and looks forward to helping educate customers on the quality and fit of Red Wing brand shoes.
