Our History

history

Remember…

…when the community was tight-knit and the shop owners knew you by name? That’s what it was like when Henry Burch first opened his store in 1935, and it’s how we still feel at Burch’s today. This old-school approach has helped us develop long-term friendships that span generations.

Even in the 1930s, Pacific Northwesterners required their unique mix of outdoor, dress and work shoes, so we have gained decades of experience outfitting customers for Oregon living. Not much has changed over the years. Our customers still want high-quality footwear, exceptional service and every size in stock. So that’s what we happily provide.

The Burch’s philosophy has been respected and sustained by the Combs family, the owners of Burch’s since 1961. We are proud to be one of the longest standing businesses in the Eugene community, and we enjoy helping our customers and neighbors celebrate Northwest living with gusto. Please come in—we’d love to meet you too.

I've bought shoes from Burch's since Christmas of 1963. I love the store. I think I have over 20 pairs of shoes from just this year, but I can't let my husband know!

My entire family shops at Burch's. I buy my sandals, running shoes, hiking boots and dress shoes there. Actually, I buy all my shoes there!

My shoe expert Gene introduced me to UGG slippers, I loved them so much I went back and bought all four colors!

I stopped shopping at Burch's when I moved away from Eugene, but rediscovered the store when I came back and started working in an environment where I needed to dress more professionally. They have a huge selection of comfortable shoes that look good, and last. I will never buy a cheap pair of dress shoes again!

I have problems finding shoes that fit and work for me. They've been extremely patient helping me find the right shoes—I will always buy my shoes at Burch's.

We were very happy the first time we shopped at Burch's and it occurred to me that since this is Oregon, it’s going to rain. So we came back for some waterproof shoes.  Service was fabulous!

I like to come down here mostly because I have wide feet, and they have wide shoes.  Shopping experience was great, I get to talk to a real person and not just walk by stacks of boxes.  They are incredibly helpful.
