Pungo Ridge, home of WesternBootSales.com, was established in 2008 as Western Boot Sales, an online western store by Bob and Joan Stephens, former owners of Western Boot Service aka "The Cowboy Cobbler", located in Auburn, California. Bob was involved in the Western industry for over 50 years before he finally retired in 2009. For most of that time, he worked as a sales representative for many major manufacturers of boots, apparel and accessories. After their retirement, his daughter, Kelley, and her husband Tom Moore, a retired US Marine, took over operations of the business.
Since then, Tom and Kelley have opened a retail store, Pungo Ridge, located in the Creeds area of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Pungo Ridge was named after the region of which the store is located and serves as an outlet for the online store and offers additional merchandise that caters to the local outdoor enthusiasts in their rural area of Southeast Virginia and Northeast North Carolina. Read more about how Tom and Kelley started Pungo Ridge from a local article in The Princess Anne Independent News.
As a small business with less than 5 employees, Pungo Ridge takes pride in their excellent customer service. We make sure that each of our customers is treated with the personal service that they deserve whether they have placed an online order from another area or if they walk through our front doors.
Our online store has a vast selection of everything Western. Hats, apparel, boots and accessories, as well as home décor and pro rodeo gear. We strive to keep everything updated with the current styles and selections from more than 30 popular brands of merchandise.
Our retail store’s showroom has more than 3500 square feet of merchandise that is displayed in various vignettes made of wood and tin donated from local farms in the area. Many antiques harvested locally are also used to create unique displays throughout the store. If you’re ever in the area, you must come by to see the store, if nothing else, to experience the distinctive character that Tom and Kelley have created.
A lot of hard work has gone into creating Pungo Ridge and we hope that you will enjoy an exceptional shopping experience and come back often. We truly do appreciate your business.
