Great place to get shoes for everyone in your family! So helpful and easy to work with

I was looking for some shoes for my son and sent a message to Thompson’s. Within the hour, I received a message back with several shoe options. During the pandemic, they delivered the shoes to my house within a few hours. I was so impressed! Way better service than any big box shoe store!

I had checked on a pair of shoes before the covid-19 outbreak and they told me they would get ahold of me if they could get them in! Not only did they still call and let me know they came in, but delivered them to my house that same day! Such great customer service!
