77 Years of Shoes

Anderson’s D&S Bootery – The Original D&S Bootery was founded in 1938 by Percy Doyle and Theodore Solomon.  Prior to opening in the Jacobson Block their location had housed a billiard parlor next to B&B Drug. The Jacobson Block was on the North East corner of First Avenue and First Street SW. It also was the home to B&B Drug. In 1948, Solomon’s interest in the store was purchased by Arthur Anderson. Eight years later, in 1956, he bought our Doyle’s interest and added his son as a full partner. When the Jacobson Block was purchased to be demolished for a parking lot, Anderson D&S Bootery moved to Main Street, across from Ellison’s Department Store. It remains in the Anderson family to this day
