Age 32, Owner of Broadway Shoe Repair

A young man in an old profession, Jeff Wickstrom is a shoe repairperson and the owner of Broadway Shoe Repair in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Jeff grew up in the store, as it was a family business run by his dad.

Now in his 30s, Jeff likes to tell people that he started working at Broadway Shoe Repair in 1985, since he’s been around the shop all his life, running errands or just getting to know the neighbourhood. Jeff officially began working for the store while he was in high school, learning the trade and the business side from his dad. He picked up techniques by watching experienced tradespeople and honed his skills through practice and repetition.

At the age 25, Jeff purchased Broadway Shoe Repair from his dad. Even though it was a huge decision to make at such a young age, Jeff knew that this was the career that he wanted for life.
