In 1938 (E.M.J.) van Bommel and his father (F.J.) van Bommel started a shoe store in Willemstraat in Eindhoven. In 1992, Eduard (E.F.J.) took over this shop and moved to the Hooghuisstraat. After ten years of successful business, another move follows. This time to a building on the Vrijstraat. Until then, van Bommelschoenmode sells both women's and men's shoes. In 2009, however, a big dream will be fulfilled, back to the basis, where the Bommel shoe family is good at: the sale of men's shoes.
