Like most of the best ideas, Working Person’s store began with disappointment. In October 1994, Dennis Deniger realized that disappointment when he couldn’t find a single store that could outfit him from head to toe with appropriate work wear. So he started his own. He bought a small shoe repair business from Virgil and Joanne Waltz in the small town of Lakeville, Indiana called V&J shoes, and less than 18 years later, that small beginning turned into a multi-million dollar company. Today, with his son Eric Deniger running the family business, Working Person’s Store is the #1 world-wide destination for quality work clothing, work footwear and safety gear, serving thousands of customers daily, on five different continents. And it is one of the 500 fastest-growing privately-owned businesses in the country. We still aren’t the biggest, but we’re proud to be the best. Through the boom of the Internet and the collapse of the economy, Working Person’s Store has remained successful because we have remained focused on our customers. The buying experience is different here. We believe that quality isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. Which is why we only sell quality products that pass stringent requirements for durability and reliability, and we sell them at a price that you can afford. And we guarantee it, with our exclusive 120% Price Protection Guarantee, and free shipping on orders of $49 or more. We serve businesses and government agencies including all branches of the United States Armed Forces. Our team is dedicated to serving the needs of these organizations and will help you every step of the way. We have attractive programs for groups of all sizes and offer time-saving and cost effective services such as in-house embroidery and screen printing. We are also an approved GSA vendor. We maintain a great selection of work boots, work uniforms, fire-resistant apparel, high visibility apparel, work gloves and safety glasses from great brands like Carhartt Clothing, Wolverine Boots, Dickies Uniforms and Workwear, Danner Boots, Bates Boots, Converse Boots and more.

Today, as when the business began almost two decades ago, when you shop at Working Person's Store and, you'll still feel like you're shopping in a small shoe store in a small town in Indiana. Our attention and customer service makes that as true today as it ever was.

When you purchase a pair of high-quality work boots or shoes, you are making an investment.  You shop hard to find the best boot for your job with all of the right features and expect your boots to work for you by providing comfort and safety.  Quality boots have the potential to last you years and years and suffer minimal damage.  However, you must do your part and care for them properly and, thus, extend their life. Owning a pair of boots made from leather or synthetic materials requires regular maintenance.  To preserve leather, you must clean it to remove dust and dirt and apply a leather conditioner.  Different leathers and materials, however, require different care steps.  It is important to read the label or box that comes [...]
