Jildor Shoes has been outfitting women and girls with stylish footwear since the first tiny shop opened in Cedarhurst back in 1949. Business boomed, and the fledgling firm soon moved to larger digs in Cedarhurst (where they are today, in the middle of town on bustling Central Avenue).
Today, Jildor's a chain, with four shops offering popular brands, from Donald J. Pliner, Chloe, Kate Spade and Juicy Couture to Frye,Hunter Boots, Birkenstock, Saucony, Sperry Top-Sider and Jimmy Choo for UGG Australia. They've also got an array of handbags and accessories (from the likes of Tory Burch and Michael Kors).
Whether you're on the hunt for platform pumps, office-ready slingbacks, ballet flats, retro booties or rain boots and loaf-about slippers, this is the place. The shops tend to be spacious, airy, and staffed by quick, savvy salespeople.Hours: Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Wednesday (Cedarhurst) 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Thursday (Great Neck, Woodbury) 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
