Goodfellows Shoeshine of Las Vegas was originally founded in 1991. Company founder and President, Shelley Bonner Carson had the foresight to recognize the opportunities that the local economy would offer during the initial planning and development of what has now become a city of “mega resorts and Entertainment destinations” that draws millions of visitors annually. The company’s concept has always been to offer first class professional shoeshine concessions catering to all demographics, providing first class products and services, positioned in high traffic locations within premier tour and travel facilities including hotels, airports, and convention and trade show venues.
The company launched it’s first retail operation with shoeshine services at San Francisco International Airport in January of 2011. This concept, Goodfellows Shoeshine is high end men’s grooming salon atmosphere with the very best and desired men’s grooming products available today. Our brand partners are Jack Black, Anthony Logistics, Art of Shaving and others to pamper our business and leisure travelers. We are constantly seeking out the best of the best to provide our clientele with the latest skin, body and hair breakthroughs which are organic in nature, anti aging and environmentally friendly. The product lines include shaving care, hair care, skin and body care, shoe care products and travel accessories for the business man on the go. We carry all product lines in TSA compliant sizes. This concept is rolling out nationally and internationally over the next decade with plans for numerous new airport locations on the horizon.
