My ‘shoe repair guy’ located off a side alley on Queens Road, Central, Hong Kong has moved. Nothing surprising there then. Except that they’ve been there for over 30-years, in the same location, in Hong Kong! With its very fast turnover and fickle landlord/tenant relationships – that must be a record! Anyone know of any stores that have been in the same location for longer? I know there are and perhaps we can celebrate a few great ones from around the world.
