The Beverly Hills City Council honored legacy business Arturo’s Shoe Fixx, now in its 31st year in Beverly Hills, being run by the third generation of the family. Arturo Azinian’s career in shoemaking began in Buenos Aires in 1939 at the age of 11. Arturo came to Los Angeles in 1957 on vacation, staying for four years working at Aletea Shoe Remodeling and doing repairs for I. Magnin and Bullocks. Upon his return, Arturo decided to move his family to Los Angeles, continuing his work at Eletea until he purchased the store. Eventually, he expanded to open Arturo’s Shoe Fixx in Beverly Hills in 1988. Arturo worked side by side with his wife Calliopi until her death in 1996. His legacy continues with his grandson, Ari.
