"The original Vans motto was 'Tell A Friend About Vans.' If a customer left happy
they would go tell 3 people. All the way back from 1966, Vans retail stores were created as an essential
part of Vans' success. The founding Van Doren family had 3 key ingredients for success: quality, value and
superior customer service. Today, 40+ years later, this division still plays a key role at Vans, and our
motto is still the same."
