Bio: I chose to work at Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel because I enjoy working with customers. I’ve worked with a variety of people, from a truck driver to runners to farmers who bring me honey. My favorite product we sell is Darn Tough Socks. They’re made in Vermont and they stand by their product.
Bio: I work for Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel because it’s a local, family-owned business with great products. My favorite moments at Lenny's usually involve Shelby and her many "moments". Her most used word is "whoopsie". My favorite Lenny's product would have to be Carhartt B13DST jeans because they are comfy, have nice deep front pockets and are durable.
Bio: I was fortunate enough that my parents own the business, so I was able to work here. When you're working with a customer and you finally find the perfect shoe for them, and they get a look at satisfaction on their face. That's how you know you did your job to the best of your ability, and it's so rewarding. My favorite brand is Crocs! So many colors and they are super comfy.
Bio: I work at Lenny’s because it allowed me to be with my husband (Mark) and work when my kids are in school. My favorite moments working here I have to say everything about the company, being in the family, it is a joy to see how hard my father in-law worked, my husband works and now having our daughter work as well.
The last production with Jake has been a very proud moment for us to be able to share our story, listen to how things began and to know that we care so deeply for the communities that our stores are in. Olukai sandals and Dansko clogs are two of my favorite items we carry; when I wear either, my back doesn’t hurt me!
Bio: I chose to work at Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel because it’s a family-owned business and it really felt like working with family when I started. Everyone is so kind and welcoming; it is wonderful. I love how close we are as employees. We all see each other more than our own family. We try to go bowling or out to dinner a couple times a year. This spring the barre store went bowling and had dinner all together and it was so nice to spend time with everyone outside of work, we all had a blast!
My favorite Lenny’s product is Dansko’s. I own 8 pairs of Dansko’s; the quality and the comfort are phenomenal.
Bio: I really like the pattern and the comfort in the Sitka. Yeti and Hydroflask I use every day. Keeps your drinks ice cold and coffee hot.
Bio: I chose to work at Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel because it's a very successful, family-owned, tight-knit group of employees, who treat each other like family. Who wouldn't want to come to work every day to an atmosphere like that?
My favorite line is Sitka Gear, mainly because of my passion for hunting. Sitka is a high-end hunting gear company, who specializes in making hunt specific clothing to elevate the success of those who choose to wear it. Each garment is built with a specific purpose in mind. They are also huge on the belief of giving back to the industry in conservation. They believe in protecting the hunting industry for not only now, but the future as a whole.
Bio: I had just moved back from North Carolina and the staff at Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel seemed very friendly and happy working here. My favorite Lenny’s moment is when I won a Yeti Tundra 65 during a sale competition.
One of my favorite products is Native Sunglasses because they enhance my vision, I no longer get headaches in the bright sunlight and when I am fishing I can see the fish in the water way better than any other sunglasses I've ever owned.
Bio: I work here because it’s a great and reputable business. I remember when Hurricane Irene hit, and Lenny's traveled to many of the flood locations to give out free Carhartt jeans and sweatshirts to the victims. It was so gratifying.
We carry so many brands and products that I love. But I am a definite Prana clothing fan. Fits my body and type and all their products are cute and stylish.
Bio: This is actually my first job, but, when talking to family friend that used to work here,they only had great things to say about the company and customers so I figured I'd give it a shot. I’ve never regretted that decision.
A couple of years ago, we were a part of the 4th of July parade and I got to wear the Sasquatch costume. It was definitely awesome to make the kids happy and to just act like a fool in front of everyone. Hopefully I'll get to do it again soon!
My favorite product definitely has to be Keen hiking shoes. I've had many pair and they've all been insanely great for what I use them for.
Bio: I like working for a local and family owned business. I enjoy when Todd works the floor with us. There are so many great products that we sell, but one of my favorites is my Oofos.
Bio: I was familiar with what Lenny's & Apparel did as a company to give back to the community in Vermont and knowing that a New York location was opening, I knew I needed to be a part of a company that cares so much for the local people. My son, Shyroc, and I participated in a Plattsburgh Lenny's commercial and it was his 4th birthday.
My favorite item by far is Darn Tough socks. They are super comfortable, have fun patterns, have a lifetime guarantee and are made locally.
Bio: I was looking for a privately owned company to work for while relocating from Connecticut. Lenny's Shoe & Apparel looked like a great company to work for. One of so many favorite memories was my interview with Todd prior to being hired. It stuck with me and was a clear indication of how it would be great to be part of the Lennys Shoe & Apparel team.
I am very partial to Danskos and Sanita’s. They are very comfortable and a 24/7 shoe. Being on your feet for 10 hours you need a shoe with support. They fit the working woman's needs for her feet.
St. Albans Store
Bio: I chose to apply at Lenny's Shoe & Apparel because I knew getting to interact with people all day on a daily basis would be a lot more enjoyable than washing dishes all day. My favorite moment so far here at Lenny's was definitely the time my store manager bent over to pick up boxes and completely ripped a hole in his pants the length of his leg.
Yeti is my favorite product here because the quality is just amazing and it actually works. They keep beverages colder than anything I've ever used before.
Bio: One of the funniest moments in working at Lenny’s was when my store manger pants ripped in the middle of the sale floor. One of my favorite items we carry are the Klog brand clogs for the comfort.
Bio: I love the products we carry and educating our customers about them. I like anything Danner or Mountain Khaki, they are simply the best.
Bio: I enjoy retail and being around lots of people. Making customers happy makes me happy. When I first began working here, I was also teaching preschool. I used to dream about leading “circle time” with my Lenny’s staff. Always funny!
I have a customer who brings the staff chocolates every time she comes in. Such a pleasure for all.There are so many wonderful products that it’s difficult to choose. I like to be outside, so hikers are always of interest. For clothing, I love Kuhl - again it’s outdoor friendly and looks good at the same time.
Bio: I have shopped at Lenny's since I was a kid, always getting my back to school sneakers and winter jackets here. I love working for locally owned businesses and when the job opportunity came up and aligned with my skills, I knew it was something I wanted to pursue.
I love filming our television commercials. It's fun to work on the concepts and find coworkers, friends, family and customers to participate. We always have fun filming and manage to spend most of the day laughing, and usually dancing and singing as well!
I enjoy anything by Prana. I love my Kara jeans and all the Prana summer dresses.
Bio: I work at Lenny's Shoe & Apparel because we believe in supporting the community. Lenny's is a locally owned and operated family business. As a previous owner of a VT local business, Lenny’s was very appealing business to join.
We support many not-for-profit causes (Special Olympics VT & NY, COTS, LUND Foundation and the VT Foodbank) that are close to my heart. I enjoy providing an amazing atmosphere for our customers. Having our customers come back to provide for their growing families and getting to know them is incredibly rewarding. We see several generations of family's shopping and even shopping for each other.
Of course, I LOVE shoes and clothing. It's almost impossible to choose a favorite. Aventura is a family-owned and organically sourced clothing company. They offer a fashionable, comfortable and eco friendly clothing. I love going from work all day to play and recreation.
Bio: I chose to work for Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel because it’s a local, family-run business. My favorite memories are of our charity work with the Humane Society. I created the "Quarter Drop" game that raised over $6000.00 for the Humane Society of Chittenden county. Also when two frequent female customers came in and gave me a hug and said "You and your fun personality are the reason we come here.” I like the Olukai Moloa shoe for their comfort and ease.
Bio: I grew up going to Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel whenever a new pair of shoes were needed. When I saw that they had a position available, I knew I had to apply.I’ve always admired the charity work Lenny’s does in the community. The staff is welcoming, helpful and close-knit. My favorite memory is when I was being interviewed. I was asked if I were a key on a keyboard, which key would I be. Most unique question I’ve been asked.
I have become a Darn Tough convert! Not only are they comfy and colorful, but you can’t beat their lifetime guarantee and the fact that they are made locally.
Bio: I have over 21 years of shoe and retail experience. Lenny's Shoe & Apparel was a great opportunity to expand my knowledge. One of my favorite memories was my experience as the District Manager when I was hired. It gave me the opportunity to meet all staff in all locations. Another favorite memory was opening the Plattsburgh location. My favorite brand we carry is Kuhl. I like it’s quality and it fits my taste of clothing
Bio: I chose to work at Lenny's Shoe & Apparel because of the laid back atmosphere.A few years ago, Marshal, our receiver, made a huge tower of empty boxes and hid in it. Marc came around the corner and Marshal jumped out from his tower and scared the daylights out of him! My favorite product we sell is Smartwool PHD Socks. I really like the way they feel.
