Brent Johnson, 2019

Store Manager
Favorite Local Attraction:

Hunger Mountain (Waterbury Side) and Northfield Country Club.

Bio:

I chose to work at Lenny’s because it's a small family company without the corporate environment. I was store manager next door for 8 years at Rite Aid and always thought that it would be a great place to work... and here I am!

Favorite Lenny’s Product:

My favorite Lenny’s products are pretty much all of the hiking shoes and boots.

Favorite Local Attraction:

Anywhere outdoors weather it's kayaking, hiking, landscaping or just hanging with my boys playing in the mud.

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".

Favorite Lenny’s Product:

My favorite Lenny's product would have to be Carhartt B13DST jeans because they are comfy, have nice deep front pockets and are durable.

Ella McCarthy, 2016

Sales Associate
Favorite Local Attraction:

Millstone Hiking Trails, Barre Heritage Festival

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.

Favorite Lenny’s Product:

My favorite brand is Crocs! So many colors and they are super comfy.

Favorite Local Attraction:

Skiing at Bolton Mountain

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.

Favorite Lenny’s Product:

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 was familiar with what Lenny's Shoe & 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.

Favorite Lenny’s Product:

My favorite item by far is Darn Tough socks. They are super comfortable, have fun patterns, have a lifetime guarantee and are made locally.

Favorite Local Attraction:

City Of Plattsburgh Marina

Bio:

My family and I have shopped at Lenny's in Williston for years, so when they came to Plattsburgh, I knew it was somewhere I'd love to work. I left Lenny's in 2016 when I moved out of the area, so this is actually my second time working for Lenny's. If it wasn't great why would I come back?! One of my favorite spots in town is the City Of Plattsburgh Marina, in the summer it's the best spot to grab a bite to eat and watch the boats!
