About Us

Family-owned & operated since 1956

Thompson’s Famous Name Brand Shoes is a family owned and operated business. The shoe store was founded by Katie Thompson in 1956. She starting selling shoes in her garage and quickly built the store where it still stands today. Katie, her son William, and daughter-in-law Rachel expanded the business over the years, and the store is now in its 3rd generation, headed by Will.

We continue to follow the same motto that has allowed our company to flourish throughout the years – customer service. Our staff is here to give all of our valued customers the personal service and attention that sets us apart from big box stores and department stores.

I just had the most wonderful shopping experience at Thompson's Famous Name Brand Shoes. Extremely helpful salesman and a wonderful selection...I have a very hard time finding shoes that fit; however, I had no trouble finding my size and shoes that were very comfortable. This will be my shoe store for life!
