    shoes not collected signage

    Just take money up front. I have been doing it for 8 years and I get left with nothing on my shelves. Do it some will moan the majority understand why. 8 years ago I had a pile of uncollected repairs and when I added them all up they came to nearly £400. From that day on I thought sod it they pay up front.

    I think we are the same Eric. I don’t turn anything away if I can help it. Had some men’s shoes in last week that another repairer told him to throw away . Rubber sole and heel and made some new leather tongues for them.
