2005 Best Shoe Shine

Prudential Center Shoe Shine and Repair

George Trantafillidis learned his trade from his father, who operated out of the same closet-size space for 36 years. Even the scruffiest loafers pose no challenge to his shoeshining skills, and he charges just four bucks a pair. That puts Trantafillidis’s shoeshines among the best old-fashioned bargains in town.
