After 28 years, the success of this 'mom and pop' store can be summed up in five words: ''friendly owners'' and ''location, location, location.'' The store is situated in the lower level of ''The Fort'' in the heart of downtown Idyllwild. It is surrounded by restaurants, gift shops, bakeries, art galleries, and stores that combine to create consistent foot traffic.
Inside the store, you will see the walls decorated with an array of shoes, boots, moccasins, sandals, socks, gloves, hats, and more. When taking a closer look, you will notice that there are no brands short of the best quality on the market. The owners have exclusive accounts to Sorel, Ugg, Merrell, Minnetonka, Dansko, Teva, Kamik, and Hi-Tec --- you won't find these brands anywhere else on the hill.
The sale price includes all the furniture, fixtures (including the giant hand-carved wooden boot!), logos, website, name, and most of all, the reputation. Due to its seasonal fluctuation, the inventory is not included in the sale price, but is available for purchase. There is 3 years left on the lease with a 5-year-option to extend.
All in all, if you are looking to own an easy-to-run small business with a name and reputation already well established, look no further... Mountain Footwear just might be what you're looking for!
