Brown’s Shoe Fit Co. has more than a century focused on quality footwear
In the summer of 1911, Win Brown started his first shoe store operation in Shenandoah, IA with $1,700 in operating capital. Diligent work helped him achieve early success. He ordered 1,100 empty boxes and put his label on them to give customers the appearance of a large stock of women’s and men’s shoes.
From that point on, Brown was on a path to success. When he recognized someone who deserved an opportunity, he would make them a partner and loan the necessary money to get them started in the retail shoe business.
