The late Marvin Oliver open the browse shop here in Wichita Falls in 1968 in the old Dixon Boot Company building, where has remained since day one.
As many of us remember, the beloved Marlene Ermis started working for Mr. Oliver in 1974. For over 30 years, her smiling face, warm heart, and dedication made the store what it is today. Although words cannot express how much she will be missed the legacy she left will forever be remembered.
For 50 years now and 3 generations all the tricks of the trade from steam shaping hats to stamping belts, has been handed down from Marvin, to Marlene, and now to her daughter Megan. We are filled to the brim with boots, jeans, belts, hats, buckles, purses, jackets, blouses, and more!
Come check out a true piece of North Texas history and experience old fashioned service in a true western spirit!
