The Mon Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce (MVRCC) is pleased to announce one of Charleroi’s oldest businesses, Gene and Boots, as the Member Spotlight during this Easter season.

Founded in 1930 by two high school pals, Gene Madigan and his friend Boots, Gene and Boots was started from a single location in Charleroi selling popcorn and salted peanuts to the Coyle movie crowd. In addition to the Charleroi store at 522 Fallowfield Avenue, there are also five more locations in the surrounding area, one being the actual factory at 2939 Pittsburgh Road (Route 51) in Perryopolis.
Family owned and operated by Eric Ferguson, who is a third generation Madigan, Gene and Boots now sells a multitude of new products and all of the old favorites. Hours of operation at the Charleroi location are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. with extended hours during the Easter holiday season.
Please visit www.geneandboots.com to see their product line, additional locations and store hours. Whether it’s your first visit or your traditional stop, please include Gene and Boots for your holiday shopping.
