Hughes Shoes owner Boxrud dies
A staple in Red Wing's downtown business community for many years, Jim Boxrud, 68, died Monday after a brief bout with cancer.
Boxrud was perhaps best known around town as the longtime owner of Hughes Shoes. After working at the store for a number of years, Boxrud and fellow worker Rodney Hauschildt teamed up to buy the store as business partners.
They worked as a duo for 30 years before selling the business to John Wanshura in 2008.
