A store that may look ordinary on the outside is completely deceiving in this case. When stepping through the doors of Premier Shoes, one can immediately notice the excellent service customers receive. Clients are greeted by name on arrival, by the owner Krishna and his son Keemsh, and the father son duo make sure that every customer’s needs are fully met. Upon exiting the doors, it is clearly visible that customers are truly pleased with their alterations.
Premier Shoes opened their doors in 1930 and the third generation run store is still thriving. Despite many other franchise shoe repair stores and dry cleaners popping up in the area, the store has still managed to stay afloat. Out with the old and in with the new, is somewhat of a common phrase on trendy Kloof Street, but not for this family run business. With a strong loyal client list that has dated back to when they first opened their doors, they will probably be there for a few generations to come. Premier Shoes mostly count on word of mouth from satisfied customers to bring in more clients; and their speedy service and reasonable prices are other contributing pull factors. Krishna is one of the last few old fashioned cobblers left in Cape Town, and takes care and precision when meeting your customized needs.
The store itself stocks the latest range of Cellini luggage bags, as well as trendy hand bags from Jekyll & Hyde and Polo. They pride themselves on being Cape Town’s premier shoe repair specialist, and offer services from repairing shoe soles, resizing boots, lowering heels and even offer garment repairs and alterations.
