A business that has been a staple in Moundsville for decades is under new ownership.
Allen’s Bootery on Jefferson Avenue has been owned and operated by the Pettit family for nearly 70 years until just last week, when it was purchased by Carla Siburt.
Siburt, a Marshall County native, said she has always wanted to be a business owner, and with the help of her husband, will work to keep the well-established business alive.
“The first thing we’re going to do is update to computers. Then we’re going to hopefully get online and branch out into an online business. We want to change some of the décor eventually, but more importantly, we’d like to bring in some more brands,” said Siburt.
She said Allen’s Bootery will remain a sit-and-fit shoe store, and that shoppers can expect the same great service they have always seen.
