About Us

Our Story


In 1967 Thomas R. Selbee and his wife, Dolores, gave life to their passion for meeting the footwear needs of their community when they founded Scioto Shoe Mart; a multifaceted shoe store that has been providing the regions of Ohio and beyond with footwear that has yet to disappoint.

Our Mission


Today, the excellence Tom and Dolores began in Portsmouth has spread to central and northern Ohio with the formation of two other locations. While we strive to stay at the front of the constantly changing world of retail, our mission has remained the same since 1967; excellent, friendly service matched with an outstanding selection to meet your most specific needs.
