Yep, I have been dealing with this guy for quite a few years now, since my two sons went to P.N.B.High school . Boarding, long finished now. That's two hours from where I come from, and I still go there. And he is just awesome, no job is toooo much, very reasonable costs too.... Highly recomended....
I've used this firm for about 12 years, for shoe repairs and key cutting. They've always provided good workmanship at reasonable prices. Recommended. They're not centrally located, which can be less convenient if you're on the southern side of the city. Still, easy free parking right outside. I read a previous review and can't say I've had any rude service, personally.
Wow the guy at the Cobbler very very rude. Lost a customer instantly. I am new to Palmerston North and don't know my way around, have a pair of shoes I am needing fixed for this weekend. Googled shoe repairs Palmerston North and got three options. Called the first option "Cobbler" a man answered and this is how the exact conversation went:
Him: "Good morning cobbler"
Me: "Oh good morning I was wondering if I could get some prices please"
Him: "Ahhhh yes but quickly because I have a customer in front of me" (RUDE)
Me: "Um okay, how much would it be please for the bottom soles x2...."
Him: "I'll get back to you".....and hangs up!!!
I've never spoken to someone so rude in my life.
Don't recommend this place at all!!! Zero stars I'll be sure to never refer and will never say nice things when friends and family ask where to go to get shoes fixed!!!
