It’s been about seven months since the factory fire at the Fore Bare Feet plant in Helmsburg, Indiana that destroyed all their inventory and sock manufacturing equipment. As we were getting about half our adult and kids penguin socks from Fore Bare Feet this was not just a devastating blow for the folks associated with the F.B.F. but for Penguin Place and penguin sock lovers the world over. At the time
we were very worried that the factory would not return, along with the 150 or so jobs, not to mention 50% of our penguin sock inventory. But, fear not penguin sock fans. Fore Bare Feet has re-built their plant and have been installing their huge knitting machines as they slowly but surely get back into the business of making (penguin) socks. This week marked our first delivery of penguin socks
from the sock manufacturer back from the ashes with our Kids Penguin Chicks socks (adult penguin chick socks should be here next week). Over the next few months the entire penguin sock line should be back in stock along with a couple of new designs. Oh happy days!
