In 1988, Lorna’s brother-in-law took over a long time shoe repair shop in Saskatoon, and began carrying Birkenstock sandals. Family members all wore Birkenstocks in support of his new venture.
Back then, Lorna was happily teaching, and in her 24th year with the Red Deer Public School District. People approached Lorna in the most unusual places, asking where they could get Birkenstocks. Eventually, cases of Birkenstocks arrived by bus to Lorna’s home and a home based business began!
Fast forward to 1993, Lorna and Dennis opened …comforts the sole with Birkenstock, Tilley Endurables and Mephisto. Soon the product expanded to what you see today on this web site.
Over the many years, …comforts the sole has been so fortunate to have long term, dedicated, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. More than that, the many loyal, long term customers with comfortable feet and stylish clothes truly emphasize how great a store …comforts the sole really is. Life couldn’t be better!
A little bit of history is needed to explain how …comforts the sole came to be!
