Our Story

Since Wei’s Western Wear opened its doors in 1956, one thing has endured the test of time over three generations, and that is our value of relationships.

Wei Mah, our founder, was a skilled leather boot artisan and repairman. His skill and quality workmanship was coveted in Central Alberta.  He soon built a loyal following, and to best serve his customers, he used his spirit and ingenuity to outfit them first with boots, then jeans, then shirts, and hats.  Working together with his wife Moon, word started to travel quickly, and Wei’s Western Wear was truly born.

Since then, Wei's has evolved.  Two locations in Red Deer, the original heritage location, Wei’s downtown, and Wei’s “#2” in Red Deer North.  We have grown with Alberta and work wear has become a key core business on top of western wear.  Even today in 2020, three generations of family still cherish the humble beginnings of what Wei and Moon started.

What will always be a part of our identity is the energy, warmth and personal touch in our interactions with our loyal customers.  Our value of quality workmanship is reflected in all of the brands we carry.  Even in today's changing world, we value those same relationships in our community that we have never taken for granted with 65 years in the business.
