Recently on a recommendation from a friend, my wife and I visited the factory outlet of San Antonio Shoes (also known as SAS). He told us that it was much more than just a shoe store, and that it would be worth the drive across town. Was he ever right! The SAS Shoe Factory and General Store, located at 101 New Laredo Highway 78224, is the site of the factory where SAS shoes are made for distribution to their world-wide retail network. But it is also an old-time country store & gift shop, snack bar and ice cream parlor. There are also a dozen or so antique/classic cars on display, many restored to show-room condition. The snack bar has prices that haven’t been seen in decades (e.g. a cup of coffee for a nickel; a bag of popcorn or peanuts for a dime; a soda pop for a quarter). The gift shop has a great selection of books, gifts, clothing, jams & jellies, grilling sauces, etc.
Oh, I almost forgot, they also have most of their line of high-quality shoes for sale, many priced below their regular retail prices. So if you’re looking for a great deal on shoes, would like a factory tour, or just want a couple of hours of old-fashioned fun – check it out. You can call for their store hours and find out about factory tours at (210) 924-6507, or visit their Web site at www.sasshoes.com.
And when you’re finished looking at shoes, old cars and browsing the SAS Country Store, give me a call when you are ready to sell your home or find a great deal on real estate in the San Antonio area.
