Established Shoe Service of 73 years For Sale in Spokane, WA
Ressa’s Shoe Service, established in 1946, is a locally owned business in the Inland Northwest serving the Greater Spokane community. For the past 73 years, we have been selling and repairing shoes or anything else that comes through the door!

However, the current owner is ready to retire and is offering the business for sale to other shop owners currently operating in large metropolitan cities. Are you, by chance, looking for a little slower pace of life, less traffic and a lower cost of living? Let me share a bit about Spokane, Washington, and our shoe repair shop.

Over the past seven decades, we have developed great relationships with many loyal customers making their shoes and boots look like new, plus repairing all types of sporting equipment and leather goods. Some of our established clientele in the Spokane community include Nordstrom, Hoffman Music, Spokane Firefighters, Spokane Police, and many more. Ressa’s also draws customers from all over the region, including Idaho and Montana.

Spokane is the second largest city in Washington State with a population of 212,000. It features the amenities of a major metropolitan area, including many restaurants, shopping, sporting events, and annual community events such as Bloomsday, the largest timed foot race in the world and Hoopfest, the largest 3-on-3 basketball tournament in the world. Spokane is also surrounded by dozens of lakes within 1-hour of downtown, 5 ski resorts nearby, golf courses, and great hunting and fishing areas. Recreational opportunities abound!

There is growing potential in Spokane as many families and individuals are moving to the city where the average sales price of a family home is $211,000 and traffic is minimal compared to the “big city”. Now is a great time to get into this booming Spokane market!
