Spend a minute with Mehmeet and you’ll discover he’s proud and passionate about fixing people’s problems. Local and loyal customers are the key to his success.

Mister Minit specialises in shoe repairs, key cutting, engraving, sharpening, and watch repairs. It evolved from a ‘while you wait’ heel bar in Belgium in 1957. The fashion of the day was stilettos and they broke by the thousands on the cobblestone streets.

Mehmeet opened his Altona Gate store in December 2019. He’s been in the industry for more than 18 years and has worked in similar stores, including Cobbler Plus and Watch Works.

“I love helping people fix their problems – repairing their shoes and jewellery, and personalising presents for their loved ones.”

His team are passionate about their craft and experienced in the latest technology. They undertake each and every job with extreme care and precision, and pride themselves in delivering the best workmanship possible.

Mehmeet says his most memorable experience so far is the support he received from his customers and other retailers in the centre during the pandemic.

“The community support at Altona Gate is fantastic. Everyone is very friendly and supportive. Happy customers make the job enjoyable and fun.”
