Deno’s Gets a Kick Out of Muddy Boots

Ah, capitalism. Proving that one person’s fiasco is often another’s bonanza, Deno’s shoe-repair shop is enjoying gangbuster business cleaning the muddy boots of people who attended last weekend’s “Disaster in the Pasture” in Kaufman. According to the shop’s Harry Yianitsas, Deno’s has accepted a whopping 350 pairs of boots so far–so many it’s had to buy extra shelving and divert two workers to cleaning full-time. The Highland Park Village store has agreed to knock 25 percent off its regular price, meaning clean, shined boots will set you back around 15 bucks on average.
