Exquisite Shoe Fixers is a haven for professionals who value style and convenience when they’re in the rush of a busy work week. Exquisite Shoe Fixers owner Sammy Mitchell honed his trade for more than 30 years before he decided to go into business for himself, right here in the GMRENCEN.
The store is located on the Level 1 in Tower 100 and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and closed on weekends. To find out more about this Detroit staple, we sat down with Sammy.
Exquisite Shoe Fixers is a full-service shoe and leather repair store, and specializes in many different kinds of shoes. Sammy and his team can fix work shoes, wedding shoes, ice skates, dance shoes, bowling shoes and golf shoes. They provide shoe-shining services, orthopedic support installations and shoe dyeing services. Exquisite Shoe Fixers team members are also experts when it comes to leather goods; repairing purses, luggage, baseball gloves, driving gloves and more.
The biggest draw for Exquisite Shoe Fixers’ customers is the convenience factor. Sammy recently rolled out a $2 pick-up and drop-off service, where customers can call or email him and an Exquisite Shoes Team member will pick up or drop off repaired items to their office. This new service is available between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to all offices in the building. Call Exquisite Shoe Fixers at (313)471-8265 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Returning to the GMRENCEN
Sammy returned to the GMRENCEN in 2013 when he went into business for himself. When he began working in the trade, he worked at the exact location where his store is now in the 80s when the store was part of Pal’s Enterprise franchises. Coming back to the GMRENCEN made his work come full-circle, from apprentice to owner. Sammy says being a tenant inside the GMRENCEN is ideal because it is the perfect ambiance and professional setting for his business.
