Our HistoryMeet Mary Ann Thibault, Founder
Village Shoe Inn Founder, Mary Ann Thibault is one of Detroit’s most energetic success stories. An average housewife with no retail experience who transformed a tiny shoe store into a successful corporation that boasts one of the largest selections of women's shoes in the state of Michigan.
“I just felt if I had something good, if it cost a little less, if I could save someone a dollar, than they would come to me before going to the department store, and they do”.
The Village Shoe Inn is now 4 large boutique stores conveniently spread throughout Metro-Detroit with a selection of over 100 brands of women's shoes. We have been providing women with stylish and comfortable shoes for every occasion for over 45 years and are among the few remaining independent shoe stores in the country.
We have a keen eye for quality and style with a near psychic ability to gleam the best out of each line. Because of our longstanding relationships in the industry, we get more choices of style and color at better prices for our customers.
