Meet the owner

In 1953, Ralph, a shoemaker from Italy knowing only a few words of English, arrived in Trail, BC. He set up shop in Trail before relocating to the Lower Mainland and opening Ralph’s Shoe Service in 1957. As the business grew, opening in multiple locations, Ralph’s brother Lido joined him to run their Lougheed Mall store, which eventually became owned and operated by Ralph’s son, Paul, in 1990.

“I grew up working in my father’s shop on weekends, during the summer and part-time during college.” says Paul. “Working in the shop is something I had always enjoyed, so when the opportunity arose to buy the store from my uncle, I immediately took it.”

Recognized for their excellence and contribution to the community on a regular basis, Ralph’s Shoe Service has been awarded Best of Burnaby 11 out of 13 years as of 2014, an honour that Paul and his team are extremely proud of. “We have a lot of history in this community, so it’s great feeling to receive this recognition.”
