Asher Brothers Shoes

~
Do you remember the Country Boys Market with its wooden floors? Walter Smiths was the place to go for clothes on the Fulton Mall. Penny Candy had great blacklight posters and don't forget Whitie's Pet Store on Blackstone. What vintage retail do you remember growing up in Fresno?

Asher Brothers Shoes

On Van Ness downtown, across from the old Court House. Wood floors. Dad would always tell us we would grow out of the new shoes before we got to the front door.

I remember that store well. I even purchased some shoes from them before I moved from Fresno. That was a great store. Now we have nothing but big box stores that sell shoes that fall apart. I also went to Flagg Brothers a few times too. Fulton was great. Thanks for sharing.

I worked at the Asher Bros store on First and Shaw for almost 10 years. (one of my first jobs) I can still remember a few of the sales guys smoking in the break room. Ate lunch at the Carnation restaurant across the parking lot. There was a large Safeway market at the end.

Thanks for the Flagg Bros. shoe memory. I wore them in the sixties. They didn't last very long but boy they looked great when new. Wasn't it Prices on Fulton that carried them?
