Revenge Travel

by Domenic Muto on 04/20/21

Are you ready to travel?

Due to vaccinations, optimism, and pent- up demand, many people will be taking part in “revenge travel” this summer.  Essentially, revenge travel means an increase in travel and demand to travel as it becomes safer.  After being stuck at home, having vacations postponed or cancelled, and missing time with family and friends, Americans are ready to get out there and travel!

Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service is ready to help you be prepared for your “revenge travel”.  We have over 30 years of experience in repairing shoes, leather goods, and luggage.  It’s time to pull out your suitcases, backpacks, bags, and shoes and make sure that you are ready to embark on your revenge travel adventure.

While people are starting to travel, they are still being cautious.  Many people are booking trips to destinations that are outdoors such as a beach vacation or a camping trip.  Make sure that your shoes are in tip top shape before heading out on your trip.  At Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service we service all types of shoes including athletic shoes, boots, and orthopedic shoes.  We can repair or replace heels, stitching, tips, soles, and more.  We also offer shoe stretching and orthopedic shoe modifications.

Double check your bags and backpacks before your trip.  Time to show off your cute handbag at your beach destination or make sure that your backpack is ready for a hike.  We offer a wide variety of repair services for handbags, purses, briefcases, and leather goods.  We can repair or replace buckles, straps, stitching, zippers, and more.  We can also add items such as clasps.

Of course, before you leave on your trip, you need to pack.  Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service is an approved luggage repair shop.  We work on manufacturers such as TravelPro, Atlantic, Delsey, Victorinox (Swiss Army Luggage), Ricardo, Skyway, and Briggs and Riley.  We also service other brands and luggage that is out of warranty.  We can repair or replace luggage retractable handles, luggage carry handles, luggage feet, luggage zipper sliders, luggage zippers, luggage wheels, and more.

Socially Distanced Holiday

by Domenic Muto on 12/03/20

Ideas For The Holiday Season

Have a very merry socially distanced holiday this year!  Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service knows that the holidays this year are much different from past holidays.  Here are a few ideas of what to do with the family for the holiday break ahead:

•    Take a walk around your neighborhood at night and check out all of the holiday decorations.
•    Organize a candy cane hunt for your family.  Send them in the backyard or around the neighborhood on a quest to find the candy canes.
•    Have a Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa scavenger hunt.  Set up clues related to the holiday and let the family participate.  You could even have close by friends participate (though socially distanced of course!).
•    Go camping in the back yard.
•    Go on a staycation to some place local that you’ve never been to before.
•    Bike or hike around the town.
•    Make smores around a fire pit.
•    Go to a drive in and see a holiday movie.
•    Plan a vacation for 2021.
•    Learn how to dance (swing, ballroom, country) virtually and then find a place where you can try out your skills.
•    Check out local events to see what is still safely being offered.


Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service wants you to have a safe and fun holiday.  Before setting off around town to see lights, bike, or hike, make sure that your shoes are in tip top shape.  We welcome all types of shoes, boots, orthopedic shoes, and athletic shoes.  We can repair or replace stitching, heels, tips, and soles.  We also offer orthopedic shoe modifications.
