Hi guys! I am Michelle Hardy. I have been working at MO’s for about 5 years. I am the manager at our West Jefferson location. I am married to Kelly. I have two kids Thomas and Tori. I love the Lord and enjoy church and talking about how good God is. I love meeting new customers and talking to old friends I have made at MO’s. My favorite part about my job is getting to help people find the right boot or outfit. I have worked in customer service for a long time and I just love people. Come see me in West Jefferson.



Bentley Anson Hardy, A Bichon Frise, was born June 4th, 2005! He has been working at MO’s Boots since we opened our doors in November of 2005. Bentley or “B” as he is often referred to, loves to greet shoppers when they enter the store and enjoys getting his back rubbed by customers of all ages. He enjoys laying on the counter most days, getting a monthly bath, chasing tennis balls, playing with his stuffed elephant, walking in the yard with his “Nanny” and eating anything he can find in or around a trash can. He always gets Puppy Ice Cream on his birthday and plans to work until he retires to the Rainbow Bridge in the sky. Come see Bentley and share some rubs with him at our Boone location!





Mosey Irene Hardy, a Golden Retriever, was born April 20th, 2011. A customer was in the store in June of 2011 and said he had a “runt” of the litter left in his breed of Golden’s and that she hadn’t found a home yet. Kelly went and met the 8 week old puppy and instantly fell in love,then made the best trade in MO’s Boots History. He traded the customer a $100 pair of work boots for that puppy. Later that week a young teen customer was in the store and petting said puppy when she said you should call her “Mosey” and that name Stuck. Mosey Loves to play basketball, float in the river, chase laser pointers, play with her cat (Boots) at home and absolutely loves greeting kids and their families when they enter MO’s Boots. She can be found at either location throughout the year, she sometimes chooses to go to work with her mom but most days get in the car with her dad. Come play with Mosey one day and enjoy her loving personality!
