Ok, I’m not going to lie, I have a shoe problem. Like most girls I LOVE shoes. During the winter months you can find me in my Converse and in the summer I’m in either Olukai flip flops or Birkenstocks and this month’s business of the week helps with my love for these two brands of shoes since they carry both.
When I moved to North Plains 10 years ago, my then boyfriend, now husband introduced me to Gimres. Finding an amazing shoe store isn’t one of the things that is typically on your radar as far as something new to find when you move, however it is one of the small things that allows you to feel like you’re part of your new community.
So why do I love this shoe store so much? One reason is that it is the oldest family run shoe store in the Western United States. They have served the Hillsboro community for 124 years.
Another reason that I love them is that they are knowledgeable and willing to help you find the right shoe for you. One example is that my husband has a specific style of Ecco brand shoes. We were having a hard time finding them, and Gimres helped us find them online and ordered them from the company for us.
If you are looking for a great pair of shoes go visit Gimres. They are located at 256 E. Main Street in Hillsboro.
