Sal’s Shoe Repair, Inc.
Family-owned and operated, Sal’s Shoe Repair business, currently located in Annandale, Virginia, has been in business since the 1950’s and has been thriving ever since. Shoe styles have certainly changed over the decades, just as the businesses have come and gone in Annandale, but Sal's Shoe Repair has been at the same spot on Little River Turnpike since 1954. It’s hard to imagine now, but when we originally opened, Little River was a two-lane road, and Annandale was a sleepy little town!
Currently owned by Chris Zeck, a third generation owner took over the family business from his stepfather, Nick Cirillo, in 1996. Prior to Nick, his father, John Cirillo was the owner, who retired in 1982. Nick spends most of his time in Ocean City now, but comes back every so often to visit his family and help Chris with the shop on Saturday’s. The shop’s namesake was given by our Godfather “Sal” with whom we honor and keep close to our hearts. We currently employ 3 people.
We have a multitude of regular clients, many who’ve moved out of the Annandale area, who have been coming back year after year, because of our hands-on expertise, friendly service, and advice given on all manners of shoe care. With the popularity of the Internet and word of mouth, we bring in a steady stream of new clients as well.
Sal’s is also known for its expertise in:
