Canadian Footwear Ltd. is a family owned business that was formed in 1932 by Bert Scharfstein. The Winnipeg based company has gone through many changes during the years, starting as a wholesaler from the 1930’s to 1950’s; as a footwear discounter to the late 1950’s; then competing with big box retailers through the 1970’s until the late 1980’s. In the late 1980’s Bert and his wife Ethel, passed away within nine days of each other. It was then that Bert’s son Brian and his partner Pam Cipryk purchased the business from the estate.
