GALVESTON COUNTY, TEXAS 'HlHl)AIlYNi;\YS WEDNESDAY, JULY 7,1999 C7 m • % DISCOVER f~*\ TEXAS CITY THIS ADVERTISING FEATURE IS SPONSORED AND PAID FOR BY THESE PROGRESSIVE BUSINESS FIRMS OF GALVESTON COUNTY Red Wing Shoes Store offers best in safety boots and shoes Red Wing Shoes are the number one safely shoe in the United States and the men and women who sell Red Wing Shoes are selling the best in materials, quality and workmanship. One such man is Larry Pyle, owner and operator of the Red Wing Shoes Store in Texas City. The Red Wing Shoes Store has been at the same location, 3563-A Palmer Highway, for 17 years. Pyle and business partner, Paul Kubis, took over the business in December 1996. Kubis owns several other Red Wing locations in both Harris and Galveston counties. Pyle came to the Texas City store after working in a Red Wing store in his hometown of Baytown. Pyle has been with Red Wing Shoes since 1980. Sales Associate Connie Thompson has been at the Texas City store for 11 years. "Between us, we have over 30 years experience in outfitting people with Red Wing Shoes," Pyle said. Thompson is a native of Texas City, and according to Pyle, "is the glue that holds the place together." Running a Red Wing Shoes store means adhering to the company's high standards of quality and service, a duty Pyle does not take lightly. Part of that service is measuring the customer's foot each time they try on a pair of shoes, to ensure a proper fit every time. "It is important your shoe fits properly," Pyle said. "What good is a bargain shoe if it hurts your foot?" Providing the best customer service possible also means "guaranteeing your footwear to not only fit your foot, but also fit the job you do," according to Pyle. Certain types of footwear are not recommended for certain jobs. Pyle's job is to fit the footwear to the customer's foot and also their lifestyle. Some jobs require steel toes, while others specifically state no steel toes. 'Other jobs require a boot to be worn and others a shoe. Laces are required at some jobs and pull-ons at others. Pyle carries a large selection of all types of footwear and knows what works in different situations. Pyle provides footwear to workers at many of the area's industrial companies, refineries and plants as well as workers from Texas City, Galveston, League City, Bacliff and Galveston County. In an effort to provide even better customer service, Pyle and the Red Wing Shoes Store have taken to the road. Using the Red Wing Shoes Mobile, Pyle can bring a supply of Red Wing Shoes and his shoe-fitting expertise right out to the work site or place of business. To set up an appointment to have the Red Wing Shoes Mobile visit your work site, call (409) 945-2366. Pyle would be happy to bring his shoes to 'you.
