About Moody Shoe Repair

Moody Shoe Repair began its ownership under me & my wife in 1995 and we've been grateful to watch our business grow steadily over the years.

Originally from Korea, we immigrated to the States in 1991 along with our 2 sons and have lived in the Chicagoland ever since. Like so many immigrants, we came to the States unable to speak the language, unfamiliar with the culture, and without any promises of a stable future. However, through perseverance and hard work, we were able to establish a successful jewelry business in the south side of Chicago in 1993.

Our jewelry business crumbled overnight, however, due to a major robbery which resulted in a near complete loss of our inventory. This took place in 1995, just 2 years after we started the business, and this forced us to close down the business.

Shortly after shutting down our jewelry business, we came upon a shoe repair shop that was up for sale. Despite never having repaired a single pair of shoes in my life, I was able to quickly learn the art and craft of repairing shoes under the apprenticeship of the previous owner and within just a few months, my wife & I were able to relaunch Moody Shoe Repair under our ownership. Since then, countless number of customers have come to trust Moody Shoe Repair for their shoe and garment repair needs and our list of customers continues to grow.

My wife and I are grateful for the success that Moody Shoe Repair has experienced over the years and we are committed to doing everything we can to continue in our mission to satisfy our customers.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
