About Us


Brothers Tyler and Jorden Ilnicki along with their wives Alyssa and Kelsey, started their new venture as the owners of Bob's April 2021. Having all been born and raised in Williams Lake, we have grown up seeing first hand what a mainstay Bob's has been in our community. 

We are looking forward to continuing the legacy of Bob's and serving the Cariboo community while providing the utmost customer service.


Our History

We're a small town store in beautiful Williams Lake, BC, specializing in quality footwear and apparel brands, from work to casual wear. Bob's has been serving the Cariboo since 1954, and all of Canada since 2019.

We relish the fact that the business was established in 1954 by Bob Jackson, and has a long history providing quality footwear and clothing.  And as you’ll see from the moment you set eyes on the store, we cherish old barn wood.  All of our boards on the interior & exterior of the store came from a family member’s corral at Horsefly!

Staying true to the store’s roots, we continue to carry longstanding reliable brands, such as Redwing work boots and Carhartt clothing for men, women and children, along with Bogs, Birkenstock, Blundstone & Timberland to name a few.

And in the spirit of trying new things, we have introduced a number of new quality lines, so that we can provide something for everyone.
