Gaithersburg: Hakky Shoe Repair in Lakeforest Mall Has Closed

by Patrick Herron

After 33 years, Hakky Shoe Repair in Lakeforest Mall has closed. In addition to professional shoe repair, the location also repaired handbags and leather goods, as well as provided on-site key copying services.

We’re told the owners are retiring and moving back to Korea to enjoy living with family and friends.

There are additional Hakky locations in Hanover, MD and Fairfax, VA, although we are told they are not affiliated with this location.

Hakky is yet another of the few remaining businesses to have recently closed inside of Lakeforest Mall.  In March we reported that Rita’s Italian Ice had closed their location on the lower level of the mall.
