Milestone Business Profile
Walkin' Around has been a staple in Airdrie for a long time, 15 years to be exact. They opened their doors in 2003 in Towerlane Mall when it was an indoor mall. Eight years ago, they took the leap and moved down the street to 705 Main Street for a larger location with more exposure.
Owner Frankie Eng says they don't plan on going anywhere. They plan to keep growing and supporting the needs of Airdrie one pair of shoes at a time.
