<>CELEBRATING 30 YEARS, SHOE BOX IN THE VINTAGE FAIRE MALL, TAKES FAMILY RUN BUSINESS TO A NEW LEVEL WHAT: You could say the Fox family’s Modesto business fits them like a comfortable pair of old shoes. But they would probably tell you that new shoes should be comfortable as well. Ron Fox and his family came to Modesto 30 years ago, after buying a Hush Puppy shoe store in Vintage Faire Mall, which became the Shoe Box. Three generations have worked side-by-side with Ron and on Saturday, October 15th, the family will surprise him by asking him to check out the newly remodeled women’s store. Assembled will be some thirty past and present employees and family members to ask him to tell his journey in shoes and especially the past 30 years. Ron retired some ten years ago when he sold the Shoe Box to his sons, Steve and Chris Fox. There were 21 shoe outlets in the mall when Fox arrived in 1986. He realized he would have to do something to make his store unique to survive. The difference he chose was quality and service. Most of the other stores were vying for the discount shoe business, and they are no longer in business. Taking the higher road paid off as his business grew, expanding with Shoe Box for Men that opened in 2002. The sales staff takes pride in giving the ultimate in customer service by meeting their individual needs It is true that Shoe Box is a family-run business. But not just the Fox family. They view their employees, as well as their customers, as a part of their extended family. Many of their loyal customer’s they know by name, possibly their shoe size and taste in shoes. WHEN: Saturday, October 15, 8:30 a.m. WHERE: Vintage Faire Mall 3401 Dale Rd. Suite 155 Modesto, CA 95356 (209) 577-1486 - Women’s store (209) 577-1484 - Men’s store ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Beginning Saturday, October 15th, the Shoe Box will celebrate their 30 year anniversary with a one month long promotion which features free shoe raffles from such brands as: UGG, SAS, New Balance, Birkenstock, Finn Comfort, Naot, Johnston & Murphy, Vionic, Taos, Sperry, Teva, Keen, Spring Step and Arcopedico.
