The Shoe Tree was launched in 1989 to provide the best quality in shoes and the most careful fitting possible. That is why we partnered up with our neighbours at Thera-Ped Foot and Ankle Clinic in 2003 to provide you complete pedorthic services. At The Shoe Tree, we want everyone who comes into our shoe store to enjoy a comfortable feeling shoe so we carry major shoe manufacturers and brands including Clarks, Reiker, New Balance as well as a dozen more major shoe brands.
Jon grew up in Trinidad and Tobago and later attended schools in England. He moved to Canada to attend St. Mary’s University where he graduated with a commerce degree in 1974.
After many successful years working in the corporate retail sector, Jon went into the retail shoe business with a partner in 1991. Jon opened The Shoe Tree in 1996 and immediately began attracting a strong base of loyal customers who appreciated a great selection of quality shoes and an unparalleled level of client service. Jon has always believed that excellent customer service is the cornerstone of any successful business and has built a strong relationship with his clients over the past 25 years by following this mantra.
Jon’s daughter, Alison, joined the team in 2001 and soon afterwards, in 2003, she opened Thera-Ped Foot and Ankle Clinic alongside the retail shoe operation.
Jon’s small family-owned and operated business has been proud to deliver its own award-winning brand of client service to the Greater Moncton area for the past 25 years.
