OUR HISTORY

The Early Years

Our story begins with the first Moneysworth & Best shoe repair shop opening in Toronto in the mid-1980s. Within 2 years there were over 20 stores across Ontario and Quebec. In the next 5 years, the company experienced tremendous growth and expanded with retail locations coast-to-coast. As store locations grew, the brand developed its own product line and the assortment became available in thousands of retail stores across Canada and abroad.

Acquisition by EMU Polishes

EMU Polishes, a major manufacturer of Moneysworth & Best products at the time, acquired the company in 2002 and the businesses amalgamated. The Nalbandian family, with strong roots in the polyurethane, leather, polish and shoe care manufacturing sector, continues to operate the company privately out of Brampton, Ontario.

Expansion

To keep up with growing demand and to better serve customers, Moneysworth & Best moved from Concord, to Woodbridge, to their largest and current location in Brampton in 2013. This 60,000 square foot, state-of- the-art facility is designed with an advanced inventory management infrastructure and automated shipping systems. It is conveniently located at HWY 407 and Airport Road, 5 minutes from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport and minutes from CN/CP rail warehouses and its manufacturing sister company, Empack Spraytech Inc.
