Tadlock's Shoe Repair
A woman in hot-pink workout clothes plops a pair of worn-out boots on the countertop. “Okay, you pick up Saturday. Phone number?” asks Chaesong Yu, a South Korean native and co-owner of this shoe, luggage, and handbag repair shop in Providence Village Shopping Center. With no website, and an address straight out of Harry Potter, the little shoe shop at 631 1/2 South Sharon Amity Road can be hard to find, but the no-frills business, now on its fifth owner since 1938, is a sure bet for fast and friendly service.
