How The Shoe Factory came to be

The Shoe Factory is located on the corner of Cranes Hollow Rd and Rt 67 in Cranesville NY (a small village with a population of about 84).  Because of its tiny size, we are part of the town of Amsterdam which is located about 35 miles west of Albany NY, the state capital. 

 I started this business, in November of 1987, to be close to home for my three children and contribute to the family income. was launched in December of 2003. I hope you enjoy your visit and feel free to e-mail any questions or comments to me directly.  Thanks for looking and as always I appreciate your business. Thank you for your patience and patronage, this has definitely been a learning experience.  Thank you to the satisified customers that wrote encouraging e-mails.  Most people don't hesitate to complain, but a note from someone telling you they are happy with your efforts is priceless.  Our customers are the reason we are here.  If you are happy with your purchase please tell a friend, If you are unhappy please tell me and I will try to fix the problem. 



The Shoe Factory is officially owned by S&J Enterprises of NY LLC.  (Joanne and Stacey)
