How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Our ratings turn up many local drycleaners who can tune up your clothes. The really good news? Many top-rated shops also charge low prices, meaning they won’t clean out your wallet while they clean your wardrobe.

Our ratings tables will help you find area shops that offer top-quality shoe repairs at reasonable prices.

Talk with top-rated shops about whether repairs make sense, how well the job can be done, and how long the shoes are likely to last. You may find there are several ways to solve your problem—at substantially different costs.

There are a few basic steps to follow in dealing with whatever shop you choose.
