Since today was errand day, I figured I should choose something on the list that I couldn’t do at home. “Resole Wayne’s shoes” won.
Fortunately, I planned ahead because it took some time to find possible locations (one of the joys of moving) in the phone book, and then to call them. I started with five businesses. Two had disconnected phone numbers, one only sold shoes (didn’t repair them), leaving two. One of those was going to charge more to resole the shoes than it would cost to buy new ones! So, that really left just one option. We’ll see if we like their work. I hope so, because he has another pair that needs new heels, and this turned out to be the only shoe repair shop within a reasonable distance!
