Did you know?
Did you know… where this shoe store was located? This was the Pete Soumas Shoe store located at 1113 2nd St., across the alley to the south of Josh Davis Plaza. Past Perry Mayor George Soumas's father, Pete, ran this shoe store and repair shop for many years. The family even lived above the store. I remember other shoe stores in Perry. For many of us, we had one drug store, shoe shop, pharmacy, etc., that our family shopped at the most frequently. The staff at our stores knew us and our family. I shopped at Eddy's Shoe because a friend and schoolmate of mine, Dennis Leslie, worked there. I later ran the shoe department for Montgomery Ward. Where did your family shop for shoes in Perry?
