I cannot sing this man's praises highly enough. He is a craftsman and a lovely man to boot! When I entered the shop he was working on a pair of shoes and I've gotta say I was in awe. Seriously it was like watching an artist! Anyway I have a pair of shoes that have seen better days and not to bore you but his 'at home advice' was very good. When I was leaving the shop I noticed a part of the sole of the shoe had come away and he offered to fix the problem. He worked on them for about 10/15 minutes and wouldn't accept any money for his work. Found out he's been perfecting his art since the age of 17. So if you want the real deal this guy is your man!
What can I say. Absolutely disgusting.
It's a shame I have to give these guy's one star just to write a review.
After taking my expensive watch to them for a simple battery change they damaged my watch while the man was using a screw driver and hammer to take the back cover off.
The watch now is not working and will be a very expensive repair job at a watch maker as he refuses to repair it.
After mentioning it to some local friends in the area they also have had problems with this business.
While in the shop a lady was returning some boots that he also screwed up.
Do yourself a big favour and go elsewhere
Recently came to repair a sandal. Not only the work was well done and finished the next day, it was meticulously explained the reason it was broken in the first place, what it should be like to prevent it from happening, what would be done to repair it and the possible altered look. All was explained without being asked. Honest, thorough, efficient... highly recommended.
Thank you Glen. I left my favourite, much loved bag for repair. 24 hours later it was ready for collection and the work is amazing. The new stitching blends easily with the original stitching. I wont hesitate in recommending Glen Shoe Repairs to anyone looking for reasonably priced, quality work delivered in a timely manner with friendly service.
