Andrew Hagopian – Owner

Andrew started his career at Frank’s Shoe Store (the predecessor to Cleary’s) in 2000 as a salesman. In 2002 he took the next step to become a Licensed Pedorthist. After working in St. Louis for 12 years for another family owned shoe store Andrew was contacted by Tim Cleary in 2013 about the possibility of purchasing the store. Over the next few years Andrew made the transition back to Cleary’s as the details of the business purchase decided. May 1st, 2018 was Andrew’s first day as owner of Cleary’s Shoes and Boots.

Anthony Gonzalez

Anthony has been with Cleary’s since 2012. He is a boot fit specialist and is affectionately known as our “Boot Guru”. When he isn’t fitting shoes on the floor Anthony can be found working on shoe repairs in the shop. He is also currently working towards his Pedorthic license.

Dave Schwind

Dave started at Cleary’s in October of 2019.   After a long career in the steel industry Dave was looking for a fun part time job.    Growing up his family owned a shoe store and he is excited to be back in the shoe business.  Dave has been a great addition to our staff.

Marion has been with Cleary’s since 2016. She is a jack of all trades! On any given day you will find her fitting shoes on the floor, working on shoe repairs in the shop and completing a number of tasks in the back office as well!!


Jordan came on board in January of 2019. He is quickly learning about the shoe business and enjoys getting to know our customers and helping them find the right shoe.
