I took my granddaughter for soccer cleats and she fell in love with the Pink and Black ones. (There were none like them in any other store.) She was the envy of the team and felt that they made her play better. We then had to buy a pair for her sister. We have shopped at the Barn for over 20 years and we keep coming back.

I can’t thank you enough for being instrumental in helping me obtain the Sneaker Balls for the soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. I am certain the deodorizers will be a hit! I know from personal experience that The Barn can be an extremely hectic place, so I doubly appreciate your willingness to pursue my request on behalf of Solomon Schechter Day School with Impulse Footcare. Again, many, many thanks for your time and assistance.

My favorite Barn memory is the first time I came to the store – Merrells everywhere! I was in non-painful shoe heaven. Now, years later, I’ve branched out to other brands, but it’s still such a welcome relief walking in the door here: walls and walls of shoes that won’t hurt. It’s home!

My favorite memory is the first day my 2 sons and myself discovered the Barn. I was a single Mom and here was a quality store where I could provide them with the “in” styles. To this day we all shop at the Barn and now they bring their children.

The Barn has been in my family and going to the Barn has been passed down from generation to generation. I used to go there when I was little. I used to work there as a teenager. I used to bring my kids there and now my grandchildren shop there. It’s a wonderful store and again a great tradition to be passed from generation to generation.

I love that I can bring all 3 of my kids here and get them sneakers, cleats, dress shoes and even bathing suits all in one place. As a busy Mom, anything that makes shopping for my kids easier is a find!

Although all of my shopping experiences at the barn have been pleasant, one stands out. My feet were horribly swollen and I needed to buy a pair of shoes for a wedding and the salesclerk helped me try almost every pair of dress shoes in the store, and he remained calm and courteous and even somewhat humorous. I finally found the most comfortable pair of shoes and danced all night at the wedding with my shoes on! Thanks to the Barn and the kind gentleman.

I’ve been a happy customer of the BARN for over 25 years. For me it’s a great, relaxed, no pressure ‘one stop shopping’ right in my neighborhood–whether I’m looking for a pair of CROCS, a pair of dressy shoes or anything in between including clothing–I can always be sure to find what I’m looking for. The store is always, clean, orderly, well stocked and the staff is knowledgeable, helpful and polite. I want to thank the great staff for all of their help and honest advice over the years!

When I plan a shopping trip to The Barn, everyone in my family wants to go! For my kids it’s a one-stop destination where we can find everything they need for footwear and sportswear. My husband likes to shop there for the great selection of men’s shoes and boots, and I like the affordable, quality shoes The Barn carries and they have a great selection of sportswear for women. The staff is so helpful and knowledgeable; plus, the store hours are incredibly convenient!

My family’s history with The Barn spans four generations. When it first opened 60 years ago, my grandmother took my mother and her twin sister there for sneakers – and my family has been shopping there ever since! Growing up, I always remember The Barn being our first stop for shoes, sneakers and sporting equipment. Now, my husband and I take our own kids there. Just recently, the staff helped us pick out and fit my son for his first pair of shoes and they were less expensive than at other places I’d shopped. When I think of The Barn, I think of quality products at reasonable prices – even in the larger harder-to-find sizes – and a friendly, helpful staff.

I’ve been shopping at The Barn for 30 years since my mother took me there as a child. Growing up it was, and still is, the place to go to buy shoes! They have something for everyone, there’s a huge selection, and the prices are lower than other places.It’s a fun place to go, and my kids like to shop there; they have a wide variety of shoes, boots and apparel for children. I always leave with a bag full of great shoes and clothes! Everybody knows about The Barn!

When I was a young girl one of my favorite things to do was to come shopping at the Barn with my Mom. Now I take my two kids here – and it’s one of our favorite shoe stores to shop in! Thanks for still being here.

I have been buying shoes at the Barn for years. My sister, however, lives in Philadelphia, and has a difficult time finding comfortable shoes. She came to visit me in Belmont and I promised her a great gift – a trip to the Shoe Barn. She was so thrilled with the selection of shoes and the customer service that she bought 3 pairs of shoes to take back with her. She still raves about her experience at the Barn to this day!

Have been a Barn customer since 1948. Always great services. All our children and 9 grandchildren have been regular customers.

Wonderful family store – Have been shopping at the Barn for family of six since 1973. Good luck to the next 60 years!
