There are many wonderful shops and restaurants in Andersonville along Clark Street from Foster north to Bryn Mawr. One in particular is a neighborhood gem – Alamo Shoes. I have been a regular shopper for children’s footwear there for many years. They offer name brand shoes of high quality which is important to support growing feet. It is a great place to shop for shoes and boots because they have a big selection of children’s, women’s and men’s styles and sizes.I have purchased my children’s first walking shoes there because the salespeople are patient, know how to measure feet, and select a proper fitting shoe for all different foot types and concerns. They are also competent to help find the proper shoe for children who have to wear orthotics in their shoes. In the past if I didn’t see a sample shoe on display of the type that I was looking for, I have described what I am looking for to the owner or a salesperson. They looked in inventory to see if they had new arrivals not yet displayed or older stock available and found just what I was looking for. No place else that I have visited can offer the service and suggestions of footwear as the salespeople at Alamo Shoes.
If a shoe is out of stock in the size and color of one’s choice, Alamo Shoes will order it and ship it for free. An entire family can find what each individual needs at Alamo Shoes from Dad to Mom to children of all ages. If you save your Alamo Shoes receipts, you will receive $2.00 off your next purchase for every $50.00 that you spend. They offer free parking in their lot across the street so you don’t have to worry about feeding a parking meter. They are open seven days a week with convenient shopping hours. Children can be convinced to cooperate during their shoe buying experience with the promise of receiving a brightly colored Alamo Shoes balloon.
The notion of purchasing good shoes at good prices, excellent service, free parking, and a balloon to top it off can take the stress out of a shoe shopping excursion with small children and turn it into a satisfying experience. Consider Alamo Shoes in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago for your back-to-school and fall footwear needs.
