I needed my favorite walking shoe repaired and I was leaving town the same day. A friend told me about Mr. T. She said he did one day service. The shoe was not woroth fixing to the average person, but I loved the shoe mainly because it was so comfortable. I was embarassed to take such a raggedy shoe to the shop so I took several other pair so the shoe repairman would know that I had good shoes. I took two pair of Faragamos, and two pair of Bruno Magli shoes that just needed tips on the heels. When I got there I Mr. T. was such a friendly guy and he told me he had been in the shoe business for more than 60 years. Then I remembered an article I had read in the newspaper about him about five years ago. I had cut the article out, but lost it. Anyway Mr. T. told me he would have my shoe ready by a certain time that afternoon, and when I picked them up he had all five pair ready, and my raggedy shoes looked almost new. I never expected them to look so good. I have been going to Mr T every since and sending people there.
I have been going to this family owned business for 10 years now!! I started to only go because it was convienent because I worked in the Gold Coast. But after SUCH good persoanlized service I kept going back. I even live in Hyde Park and drive all the way downtown just to receive the excellent service that I have been receiving for years!! NOT to mention ALL the wonderful work they have done and I have NEVER been disappointed!!! It seems like there's nothing that you can't do....whether it's shoes, purses, or repairs. You are experts in your craft. Awesomely talented!! So keep up the good work and you know I'll keep stopping by :) and referring you to customers wherever I go.... Thx, Karen
I came in there with my beat up boots from the winter and they fixed them and made them look like new while I waited. At a great price! beats going out to buy a new pair thats for sure
