AU Students Lend a Hand with Business Transformation

AU Students Lend a Hand with Business Transformation

With help from several students from Ashland University's Enactus organization, Kid's Kountry & More owner Janice Glenn is transforming a storage area in the back of the store into a Red Wing shoe department with a separate entrance off South Street.

Glenn purchased the business last July and began carrying men's and women's Red Wing shoes to fill what she said was a void left when Jim's Shoe Store and Repair closed. But trying to sell a brand known for men's work boots out of a children's store presented the challenge of taking on a renovation project and creating a marketing campaign on a shoestring budget.
