Spotlight on Alberta Avenue: Fast Shoe Repair

"You name it, I can fix it!" - That's what owner Gino Gugliotta of Fast Shoe Repair said when asked what his specialty is. That's good news for anyone looking to get boots, shoes, bags, belts or zippers fixed - or anything else for that matter.

Gino has been running the small shop located at 8652 118 Avenue for over 30 years with just "me, myself and I". He learned to make and repair shoes as a young boy. Having just celebrated his 75th birthday, we guess you could say that certainly makes him an expert!

With all the salt, sand and slush this time of year, it's a good time to show your favourite pair of shoes some TLC.  Stop by Fast Shoe Repair Tuesday-Friday 10-5 pm, or Saturday 10-4 pm and let Gino take care of you (and your boots).
