Where Have All the Cobblers Gone?
According to the Shoe Service Institute of America, over 2/3rds of the over 17,000 shoe repair stores in the United States have closed over the past 25 years – that’s over 11,000 cobblers put out of business! From Indianapolis to Manhattan, cobblers across the country are being put out of business by advancements in technology and the rising cost of living in big-cities. This leaves consumers with little choice in shoe repair options, usually resulting in forking over big bucks for a brand new pair of shoes. Here at My Shoe Hospital, we thought of a different approach. Instead of local shoe repair, we serve the entire country.
