Rustic Roots Western Apparel is now open; offers cowboy boots, clothing and more
There’s a new place in Owensboro to get all kinds of cowboy boots, western gear and assorted accessories – with merchandise ranging from those who want to dress up for concerts to a rodeo. Rustic Roots Western Apparel grand opening is today from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The business, located at 3601 Frederica Street across from the German American Bank, is owned by the husband and wife duo of Sondra and Juan Perez.
“We wear a lot of boots, jeans, hats,” Sondra Perez said. “We like to go to Lexington quite often to a store that has a lot. We both lived in Georgia before, and there are plenty of stores like this there. Here you don’t see it. I was like, why don’t we try something new.
Perez said they will have a range of boots, which she hopes will be the main draw for customers.
“We’re not just going to have cowboy boots,” she said. “We’re going to have a lot of boots that you see people would wear to concerts or dances. We’ll also have rodeo boots, show boots, work boots, steel-toed boots, things like that.
Rustic Roots will carry men’s, women’s and children’s merchandise, although they don’t have all of our children’s items yet. They have many types of cowboy and western shirts. She said women’s styles will be more bohemian “because that’s what’s trending the most right now.”
Rustic Roots also offers belts, belt buckles, and hats, as well as handbags, gun holsters, knife holsters, and more.
The hours will be Tuesday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.; and on Monday they will be closed for inventory.
“We will have new merchandise every few weeks, so there will be new things coming in and going out,” Perez said. “We will accept all types of payment.”
