The story of Red’s Shoe Barn
It all started back in 1958 in Dover N.H.
Peter J. “Red” Murray started Red’s Shoe Barn in a converted blacksmith’s shop in Dover, New Hampshire, buying shoes direct from the many local factories.
In 1963, Red decided to put on an addition to the original blacksmith’s shop.
As business continued to flourish, in the early 1970s, he tore down the original building and addition to make room for a brand new building and more parking for his customers.
Soon after, Red’s son Pat took over as owner, and 1983 – the Plaistow, New Hampshire location was built, opening the door for Massachusetts customers to buy shoes tax-free.
As the years passed, word of Red’s selection, savings and service spread, and Red’s continued to add brands from around the world, and expanded to become one of New England’s largest footwear retailers.
Today, over 50 years later – there are 3 floors jam-packed with more than one hundred thousand pairs of shoes, sneakers, boots, and footwear of every kind.
Between the two locations in Dover and Plaistow, NH, there are over 33,000 square feet of footwear of every type, making Red’s Shoe Barn worth the trip from anywhere.
To keep up with demand in the two busy locations, Red’s constantly updates the inventory with shipments of fresh new styles every day of the week.
