Great Service with a Shoe Shine

When I travel through the Charlotte, NC (USA) airport, I frequently get my shoes shined at Executive Shine.  I always get a great shine and the people working there are friendly and courteous—even when things are a bit harried.  Until this week, I never knew much about the people behind the operation at the Charlotte airport.

Reflections on an excellent airport shoe shine


I travel frequently for work, and I’m pretty hard on my shoes. To help them last a little longer, I frequent airport shoe shines. Even if you’re not a jet setter, you’ve probably seen them. Businessmen sit on pedestals while a flurry of polish and rags brings tired leather back to life. 

When I sat down at Executive Shine, I said, “Hello,” and the shoeshiner went to work. Her nametag read, “Yordanos.”
