Weinbrenner Shoe Company Suspends Operations Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

MERRILL, WI (March 20, 2020) With the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak being felt more each day, our primary concern is and always has been the health and safety of our employees and our communities.

In order to support efforts to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect the health and safety of our employees Weinbrenner Shoe Company/Thorogood Shoes has temporarily suspended all operations until April 6, 2020, effective immediately. Both the corporate office and manufacturing facilities in Merrill and Marshfield, Wisconsin will be affected.

“I’m saddened each day as I watch the impact COVID-19 is having on our communities. The health and safety of our employees is our highest priority. The decision to temporarily suspend operations was not taken lightly. We will work with government and health officials to safely bring our employees back to work.” said Jeff Burns, President of Weinbrenner Shoe Company, Inc.
