George – Owner of George the Cobbler for 28 years

“I’m actually one of the oldest businesses still here, I’m one of the old ones. I’ve seen a lot of changes. 

I like the diversity. The good thing about Glenroy is that it’s a main hub and everything runs off here. It makes it easy. 

I’ve got people come from everywhere to see me. People come from interstate to visit and they bring their shoes with them. But most of the regulars are local. I know them.  

I’ve been here 28 years. I’ve seen little kids and now they come in with their kids. I’ve seen them grow up. I really enjoy it. I enjoy what I do, the people are nice to me, it’s made it all worth it.”
