Meet visual coordinator and buyer Brooke Pierce in our Q&A and learn more about Mahoney’s Outfitters of Johnson City, Tennesse.
What is your Minnetonka story?
Owned by Dan Mahoney, Mahoney’s has been in business for 53 years, starting out as an Army/Navy store and evolving into the premier outdoor store that it is today. Our store definitely has something for everyone!
As the times have changed, one thing has remained the same- Mahoney’s dedication to customer service and carrying the best brands! This of course includes a 30 year partnership with Minnetonka.
What is your favorite pair of Minnetonka mocs?
Personally, I LOVE the Calf Hi 3-Layer Fringe Boot in Brown Suede! I have had these boots for over a year and they are just getting more comfortable. It is the perfect height to be worn with skirts and dresses or with skinny jeans and leggings… pretty much anything goes with these boots! Several of the girls in our store have the 3-Layer Fringe Boots and we all style them a little different… but they always looks great!
What are a few must see destinations near your store?
We are fortunate to be surrounded by some excellent locations for food, entertainment and outdoor adventure!
