Dear Allen Edmonds Customers:

The year 2009 has finished with an exciting flourish in our business here at Allen Edmonds.

We’re pleased to be able to serve our longstanding and new customers with our promise to be the Great American Shoe Company.

At this special time of year, we pause even more than usual to reflect on the importance of loyal customers and friends to our company and our employees. We thank you very much for your support.

To you and yours from all of us at Allen Edmonds — Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for Good Health, Happiness, Peace and Prosperity in 2010!
