Fix It Up!

Need someting fixed, not a worry is needed! “Bill Oestreicher is proud to be a third-generation cobbler. He started learning his trade when he was 14 years old from his father, Tony. Bill continued to learn and work with his dad until he was 19 when he left to serve his country in the United States Army Infantry. Then he returned to his business in 1981, and opened his shop in the back of Peterson Shoes in 1990. With over 40 years as a cobbler, Bill can fix just about anything!” said here on Peterson Shoes website.
