Our building, known as Blind Reuben's Store, was built in 1860 as a general store run by Captain Baker's blind son. It served the Bass River community's needs for many years. Later it became a popular local restaurant where Cape Cod turkey was a favorite dish. It was also an antique shop and cabinet making shop.
Bob Hagopian has been repairing shoes for over forty years. He schooled and apprenticed in northern California with his uncle, before Bob and Cathy moved to Cape Cod in 1976. He opened Great Island Shoe Repair in West Yarmouth in August 1977, and then moved to his present location in Bass River in 1989.
A talented craftsman, Bob, handles shoes and boots with the utmost care and detailed attention. He can repair, refurbish, and resole almost anything! Services extend to bags, belts, and a variety of items.
