It began in 1972 with a pair of worn-out boots brought in by a local rancher. The expert cobblers at the newly opened shoe repair shop worked quickly to fix up the worn-down soles and patch up holes in the leather. The cobblers' craftsmanship gained a reputation around town, and soon people descended upon the shop from far and wide, bringing not only shoes but also saddles and luggage for repairs. As demand increased, the shoe repair store added a host of repair and retail services to their roster, and Pops One Stop Repair Shop was born.
In the four decades since its inaugural boot repair, Pops One Stop Repair Shop has maintained their dedication to meticulous handiwork, and they've since been a headliner of the Ventura County Reporter's Best of Services lists in 2009, 2010, and 2011. They restore everything from busted vacuums to broken handbags. While the original business has expanded and new branches of the shop have since sprung up, the company's goal of high-quality service remains the same. Each item sold in the store, whether it be eco-friendly cleaning products or air purifiers, is carefully vetted to ensure its quality and taste-tested to make sure it's not food.
Along with in-store repairs, Pops has continued its expansion of services with a foray into home-beautification services. They perform tile and grout cleaning and dry carpet cleaning.
