COSHOCTON – Carton’s Shoes and Golden’s are becoming one and Lynn Weaver is excited about the change.

“It will be one stop shopping,” said Weaver, whose family owns the businesses.

Carton’s, which is located at 420 Main St. is in the process of moving into Golden’s clothing store at 410 Main St.

“If you come in for a special occasion outfit, Florence (Golden’s manager) is great at accessorizing an outfit with scarves, jewelry and shoes,” Weaver said. “It will all be easier. People need to stop in and check us out.”

Another nice feature of the merger is that the men’s shoes are located at the front of Golden’s.

“That way they don’t have to walk through all the clothes,” Weaver said.

Customers will still be able to find men’s, women’s and children’s dress and casual shoes and Stride Rite baby shoes. However, they will no longer carry children’s dance shoes or men’s work boots.

Shoes are now available at Golden’s, but Carton’s isn’t empty yet. A variety of shoes will be on sale for the next two to three weeks at Carton’s, where the remaining merchandise is currently 60 percent off.

The Weavers have owned Golden’s for seven years and Carton’s has been in their family since 1909.

“Florence and I will both be in one place now and we can fix people up with just about anything,” Weaver said.
