Established in 1984, Moneysworth & Best develops, produces, distributes and markets over 750 shoe and foot care products to over 10,000 stores across North America and abroad.
M&B Acquisition Incorporated operates two key business platforms, whose synergy is at the heart of our extraordinary success:

Categories include: Protectors, cleaners, polishes, insoles, fitting aids, shoe trees, shoe horns, gifts and kits, rubber and leather findings, adhesives and solvents, rubber boots and overshoes, and much more.
Moneysworth & Best operates North America’s largest shoe repair chain with 26 locations across Canada. These stores provide a multitude of services including shoe and leather repair, key cutting, luggage and purse repair, and much more. They also serve as a destination for all shoe products and have a multitude of knowledge to offer in the shoe and foot care category.
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.
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.
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.
Also owned and operated by the Nalbandian family and founded in 1999, Empack is a leading aerosol manufacturing, liquid filling, private labeling and custom contract packaging company. Located in Brampton, Ontario, Empack’s facilities total 125,000 square feet and include research and development laboratories, bulk solvent and propellant storage tanks and blending areas, and three 24/hr filling production lines capable of producing over 35 million cans annually. Product categories include shoe care, personal care, household goods, automotive care, outdoor/marine, computer care, and more. Empack manufactures all of Moneysworth and Best’s protectors, cleaners, lotions, shine sprays, and other high quality shoe care products.
Moneysworth & Best continues to be a leading and trusted brand in the industry. We have maintained long long-term relationships with customers which continue to thrive, while also focusing on expansion abroad. An emphasis on quality assurance, efficient delivery and logistics, marketing and brand recognition, category specialization, private label capabilities, retail merchandising solutions and product innovation, proves that Moneysworth & Best has a strong commitment to serve the every-expanding needs of their customers.
