Mobley's Shoes a feat of family success
Not much has changed other than the price at Mobley's Shoes over the seven decades of family ownership.
uh huh, Theo. Same family running the same business for more than 70 years. Well, that's quite an accomplishment. That's quite a feat to you needed to. She needs a two. There are some right here, left here, right here at mobile ease. You know, small feet, wide feet, tiny feet. Not much has changed, other than the price and the shoe sizes of growing youngsters. Where's your toe? I grew up in the store, and I started when I was about 13 selling shoes. His mom and dad sold shoes Sam and Rachel. They began by selling Children's shoes at Britain's in downtown Raleigh. I guess the shoes sort of brought them together even closer. Absolutely. My dad was in World War Two. He went across France with Patton's third Army and came back to Raleigh after the war and met my mom, and they tied the knot and enjoyed fitting shoes in their togetherness. Mobley specializes in Children. Established 1950 for 50 years, it was strictly Children's shoes. Do you get a lot of kids in here? We dio. Kids are close to their heart. Children's shoes, Still one of the main features. It's about three or four generations, which mirrors that of so many other families. That's all we ever knew was mobilized, mobilized shoe store for the Children. And today Children still light up when they walk in. I love it. Yeah, I mean, we have some families that have been here for 50 or 60 years. They're bringing their kids and grandkids and great grands the entire Williams family, for example. It's like a family tree goes a family tree, going to mobilized your mobile ease memories has a sense of community, has a sense of purpose, a sense of comfort. I like to thank. Our business is a little different than some because we work so closely with the customer. Pick out some fancy ones. Are there many family shoe stores around? There's not Sam and Rachel Mobley. Sadly, they are gone. And yet the sun has not set on the shoe store. They started in 1950 generations of their family continue to run it a little small, and today families walk in the shoes of so many good soul who came before. That's a comfort, absolutely
