businesses have come and gone in Annandale, Sal’s Shoe Repair has been at the
same spot on Little River Turnpike since 1954. It is hard to imagine now, but
when we originally opened, Little River was a two-lane road and Annandale was a
sleepy, little town.
are a third-generation family business owned and operated by Chris Zeck since
1996. Chris succeeded his stepfather, Nick Cirillo who took over the business
from his father, John Cirillo, who retired in 1982. Although Nick spends most
of his time in Ocean City, he still comes back every so often to visit his
family and help Chris with the shop on Saturdays. The shop’s namesake was given
by our godfather, Sal, whom we honor and keep close to our hearts.
Our company has a
multitude of regular clients, both from Annandale, as well as the surrounding
area, who come back year after year because of our hands-on expertise, friendly
service, and trusted advice given in all categories of shoe care. Sal’s is also known for its expertise in:
|• Orthopedic Work (the Building up of Shoes)
• Luggage Repair
|• Sharpening of Knives & Scissors
• Duplication of Keys
Looking to the Future
Sal’s Shoe Repair continues to grow due to the need for custom repairs as well as personal and friendly service. Now, in our 60th year performing our craft, we hope to continue the cobblers trade in Northern Virginia for years to come.
