Go behind-the-scenes with Atlanta Western store, Horsetown and check out the Minnetonka style and story of owners, the Otto Meier family, in our Q&A!
What’s your Minnetonka story?
We started carrying Minnetonka products almost 22 years ago in our original or “home” store located in Marietta Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. As we added stores in the area, first Snellville and then Locust Grove, it was only natural to include a Minnetonka selection in our new stores as well. We are the largest full service Western and English retailer in the Georgia area and are happy to carry the largest selection of Minnetonka styles!
What is the most popular Minnetonka style at Horsetown?
Currently our best selling Minnetonka styles are the Calf Hi 3-Layer Fringe boot, Double Fringe Side Zip boot and the Kilty suede moc. However as the cooler weather approaches, the Cally slipper and the shearling styles are both very popular with our customers.
What is your favorite style of Minnetonka boots to wear?
In our family I would have to say the Sheepskin Ankle Boot is worn year around. Almost every member of our family owns a pair, as do many of our store managers!
How do you like to style your Minnetonka mocs?
Our lifestyle is Western Casual, and Minnetonka fits every aspect of our daily style, whether it is jeans, skirts, or dresses. Of course that is when we are not wearing cowboy boots!
What are a few of your favorite “must see” destinations when visiting the Atlanta area?
One unique place to visit is ‘The World Of Coca-Cola,’ in Downtown Atlanta. This exhibit provides a complete history of the world’s favorite soft drink! Stone Mountain is one of the area’s largest attractions, we think of it as the Mt. Rushmore of the south. And of course Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves baseball team and Falcon’s football is fun to visit as well.
