It's depressing that we're losing small specialty businesses to big-box monstrosities and chain stores. Family Shoe Service offers affordable, quality shoe and leather repair—we've had some shoes stretched here, purse straps repaired, soles replaced—for cheap. Plus, the dude who runs the place is just so damn nice—try finding that at Wal-Mart. (Bonus: After dropping off your shoes, stop by Big Al's Pizza next door for some pizza-by-the-slice that also won't destroy your wallet.)
