Downtown Business Features
Elaine Ferguson is the owner and operator of Golden Soles at 46 King St. East. Elaine was born in Brockville and grew up here, attending BCI for high school.
In 1986 she moved to Nova Scotia where she attended Acadia University; majoring in History and English. While in Nova Scotia, Elaine was a front end training supervisor at a Sobeys, and at one point was the manager of crescent jewellers in the maritimes. She also taught foreign exchange students English and treated them all as her own children while they stayed with her.
Elaine moved back to Brockville in 2008 and attended business school at SLC Brockville. There, she met Ben TeKamp, who was her professor at the time. She will always remember that he told her once that he was proud of the fact that she was back in school to open a business even though they were the same age. In 2017, Elaine was awarded the Ben TeKamp award, which she proudly hangs on her wall behind her desk.
Tomorrow is Elaine's 11th year anniversary of being open. She is proud to say she offers healthy, comfortable, stylish footwear that are orthotic.
Thank you for being in Downtown Brockville for so long and congratulations on your 11th anniversary. We are proud to say Golden Soles is part of the Downtown Brockville family.
