Marcos Leatherlab Shoe Repair coming to Harlem’s Frederick Douglass Blvd

Looks like one business person is going to mix it up on Harlem’s Frederick Douglass Blvd by not open up a dining establishment, but by opening up a shoe repair store. Marcos Leatherlab has paper signage up on one of the retail spaces in the Gateway Tower/Condos saying they are coming soon! How soon? I don’t know. Hopefully in 2012.

I checked out Marcos Leatherlab’s website and it says they are a long time family shoe repair business from the Bronx.

I think this is a nice change to the area and a much-needed service. It is not a diner, which some people have left comments here asking for, but for those that need shoe repair close by this should help. What do you think? Do we need a cobbler in this part of Harlem?
