Talent Tuesday: Donna

Posted by Amelia Ozimek on

Talent Tuesday is our weekly feature where we introduce the people who make Zimmerman Shoes. Our manufacturer is our long-standing family business, the oldest children's shoe manufacturer in the country.

Today we’re featuring our very own Donna, who's been making shoes here for almost 20 years.

 Donna started making shoes at another shoe company in the area in 1976. We were lucky she came to us after that manufacturing facility closed. Donna takes great care of our fitting room as the forelady in charge of all stitching. Along with the other fitting room ladies, Donna sews our leather uppers and takes care of ordering supplies and inventory for her department.

Donna is a grandmother of two, gardening and canning expert, and maker of some mean apple pies and chicken dumplings. Thank you, Donna!
