Ron & Nita's is
part of a great tradition of shoe stores located on the
northeast corner of Main Avenue and Court Street in downtown
Sidney. Once owned by the Burkhart family for 99 years
(from 1864 until 1964), the store was purchased by Robert
J. Kaser from Marcie Wolaver, a granddaughter of one of
the Burkhart brothers. Ron McCrum became manager of the
store that was then known as Kayser's Shoes.
In 1978, Ron opened a work clothes
store in the downstairs portion of the shoe store for
Kenneth Kaser, a son of Robert J. Kaser. Ron operated both stores until 1986 when Ron and wife Juanita purchased
both businesses. Ron & Nita's is currently recognized
as the longest continuous location of a shoe store in
the state of Ohio.
In 1986 the clothing store was
moved upstairs and expanded to carry not only work clothes
but also casual men's wear in sizes from small to 8X big
and tall. We carry a full line of name brand shoes for
the entire family. Besides having a very large inventory
of products in stock, we are also willing to special order
items directly from our manufacturers.
We invite you
to stop by and talk to our experienced, friendly staff
about your shoe or clothing needs. They are always ready
to help you find just what you're looking for. Our staff
is experienced in measuring feet for that comfortable
