Many of us are growing increasingly concerned about our carbon footprint on the planet.
Pro Shoe Repair on International Avenue offers many different options to repurpose items such as shoes, leather jackets, and hats; this allows us to keep items we love too much to simply throw away, while reducing our environmental impact on the planet.
Pro Shoe Repair, located at 3330 17 Ave SE, has made its home on International Avenue for 16 years. Owner Din Rawgi and his wife took over the store from its previous owner in 1997, and have been operating ever since. It is the only store along International Avenue of its kind.
Din is quite the handyman, and looks after repairs on clothing of all types. “Leather Jackets are a very popular item to repair, if the jacket is torn or a zipper breaks, I can repair it so it’s like new.” he says. His wife takes care of alterations and dry cleaning. Pro Shoe Repair is a great one-stop shop to protect, repair and maintain all clothing items.
Pro Shoe Repair is a great place to start reducing our personal environmental impact on the planet, while letting us keep the clothing that we have already fallen in love with.
