One of the most comforting things to read in a store is the phrase "Wear and tear repaired at a reasonable cost." This tells you that the company is selling things that they know well and that they expect to be of service for a while. This is the case at J. Press on New Haven, Connecticut's famous York Street.
(In contrast. last week at L.L. Bean a friend brought into the Freeport store a pair of Camp Mocs to be resoled, something he has done countless times over the decades. To his surprise, he found that L.L. Bean no longer offers this service, and instead, handed him a new pair of Camp Mocs. While this is superb customer service, it is wasteful, and ultimately, not what he wanted.)
Heading up York Street...
One has to admire the well-dressed people on the New Haven streets...
