EDWARDS – Kate Kalloniatis of Melbourne, Australia, visited Well Heeled shoes store and said it was stunning. “The decor is very posh and the shoes are really nice,” Kalloniatis said. “I felt like I was somewhere else when I was in there, like New York or something.”Kathy Scanlon of Edwards agreed. “I lived in Houston, Texas for 20 years where shopping really is what living there is all about. Becky’s store is on par with anything you could find in Houston,” she said. Scanlon believes Edwards is becoming more urbanized all the time, she said. “People here seem to be dressing up more and it’s nice to have a women’s shoe store with fun party shoes, many at affordable prices,” Scanlon said. Becky Hernreich and Wendy Lew, the owners of Well Heeled, said if the holidays were any indication, they are definitely filling a niche in the Edwards. They said their sales were brisk and the interest of shoppers was high throughout the month of December.”Our customers love the variety we carry but they also love the convenience of our store. Parking is free and just steps from our door,” Hernreich said as a UPS man walked in the door laden with boxes.”Everyday is like Christmas when the delivery guys come.” says Hernreich, smiling. “We love opening new boxes and putting more inventory on our shelves.”Vail Colorado
