Profile Last Updated: May 26, 2008
Hard to believe this retail chain began operations with only four stores located in Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City and Winnipeg. The franchise was an instant success. Over the course of the 1980s and 1990s the Montreal-based Aldo retailers expanded their operations throughout Canada and the United States. Aldo differentiated itself in the shoe marketplace as the exclusive seller of Doc Martin shoes and has since become known for carrying all of the latest styles of footwear. Their reasonably-priced footwear for men and women ranges from everyday or casual to business and dress styles.
Aldo’s team of buyers and stylists explore the latest trends worldwide for the upcoming season. These trends are imported and then incorporate into their product offering. That’s how Aldo keeps on the cutting-edge of fashion and always has fresh-looking footwear for customers. Besides being stylish Aldo also has a comprehensive selection of shoe sizes. The store has women’s shoes from size 5 to 12 and men’s shoes from size 6 to 14. Although they are focused on shoes, Aldo also carries a limited selection of handbags, leather apparel, sandals, backpacks and fashion accessories for both men and women.
Best Foot Forward
Aldo continues to be a leader in the marketplace with stores throughout Canada and the United States. At the end of 2007, the retailer possessed over 800 stores operating in 40 countries worldwide across every continent except Antarctica. They also expanded into the online world allowing customers to browse a catalogue of the newest offerings as well as make purchases of products and gift cards.
