Fort Western Stores Donates Gifts to Kids in Crisis

This last Christmas, Fort Western Stores was cordially invited to take part in the CEDARS Youth Services mission to provide gifts to kids in crisis. CEDARS Youth Services held their "9th Annual Country Christmas" on December 9th, 2009 in Lincoln, Nebraska at Uncle Ron's. Fort Western Stores gladly supported the cause by donating western wear, toys, footwear and more to the CEDARS kids — valuing around $1500.

Founded in 1947, CEDARS Youth Services center provides overnight care for neglected and abused children. A 24 hour emergency shelter, foster care and youth homes are just a few of the services CEDARS Youth Services provides. Thanks to sponsor's support, around 3,560 children were safe and cared for in 2009.

Fort Western Adds Painted Ponies® Collection to Online Store

This holiday give the gift of joy with the cheerfully adorned, Painted Ponies® Christmas collection. Fort Western Stores, widely known for western wear and d├ęcor, has added this truly unique collector’s item to our online store. Painted Ponies® meticulous craftsmanship is inspired by both real life experiences and fairytale.

“Dashing Through the Snow” brings the imagination to life. A horse-drawn sleigh ride on a sparkling winter day.... as harness bells jingle and hooves squeak against hard-packed snow…this prancing pony leads the way.

The enchanted pony, “Twas The Night Before Christmas”, tells the cheerful tale of Santa delivering packages to good boys and girls. As little ones lay their heads to rest, Santa and his reindeer fly through starlit skies.

Checkout our entire Painted Ponies collection online.
