Keeping a craft alive
There aren't too many places left in Thunder Bay dedicated to the art of shoe repair.
In fact, until recently there was only one.
In this hi-tech age of smart phones, internet startupsand 3D printers, opening a shoe repair shop doesn't seem like something that might rate highly on a budding entrepreneur's list of opportunities.
But one former Thunder Bay man, had just such a dream and with a little help from the city's Community Economic Development Commission, Martin Sugg moved backed to city and opened his very own busines: Timeless Shoe Repair.
