In addition! In addition! Rochester Landmark Shoe Repair Shop For Sale

Is the number of Rochester shoe repair stores ready to go from one to none?

In April, Boston Shoe and Boot Repair in the Apache Mall announced it was closing. Boston Shoe and Boot Repair has been open in Rochester for 104 years, the last 50 at the mall. Now another shoe repair shop building has popped up for sale.

Browsing real estate for sale is one of my weekly “chores”. It’s in quotes because I love jumping on the internet doohickey, searching for “real estate for sale” and visiting homes and businesses…and sometimes just plots of land.

If you want to stay in the business of repairing shoes, boots, zippers, coats, jackets, handbags, and luggage, they take the machines with them. So maybe contact Thee Only Shoe Repair owner Jim Derouin to see if you can work out a deal or something. The store was established in 1963.

The house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and although there are no pictures, the upstairs could be a rental apartment if that is something you are interested in.
