Cobbler’s Life Good for Washington’s Papadimitriou

October 2, 2018

Mihail Papadimitriou, who came from Greece in 1967 to the United States, has made a good living and a lot of friends with his People’s Shoe Repair in the city of Everett, WA, some 25 miles north of Seattle.

He works on all types of shoes, including those needing orthopedic corrections and was featured in a report by the Tribune newspaper in his home city, which noted that he brought an old-world European charm to work.

“The bell rings when you enter. The smell of quality leather fills the small space. Shoes, all sizes, shapes and colors, can be seen behind a vintage desk where Michael (as he prefers to be called) sits. Photographs of famous figures cover the walls of his cozy shop, along with previous writings he has framed and hung from the many periods of his life,” the story said.


ATHENS - A regulation in an omnibus bill will allow repatriated Greeks from Albania and the former Soviet Union to receive full national pensions, Labor and Social Protection Minister Kostis Hatzidakis said during a discussion in Greek Parliament on Tuesday.
