ELKHART Folks in Elkhart County will soon have to travel a lot farther to get their shoes repaired. Jones’ Shoe Repair is closing down after 38 years in business.
When Glen and Shirley Jones opened their shop in 1975, there were 6 other cobbler shops in Elkhart. According to The Elkhart Truth, Jones’ Shoe Repair is now the last one in the county.
The Joneses tried to close shop three years ago, but their customers just wouldn't let them. However they say now it is time, and they will lock the door at 3 p.m. December 31st.
