Elio’s Foot Comfort Centre opened its second store in the Pine Street Plaza, expanding services available to their loyal customers and continuing on the legacy of the late Elio DiFelice.
His sons, Mario and Rob, have been able to build on their father’s success. Sept. 30 marked the grand opening for Elio’s new clinic at 9 Pine St.
With the new centre, the DiFelice brothers were able to expand from to four from two examination rooms, add retail space and still provide the services their customers know and love.
The old store on Front Street is functioning as a shoe and leather repair shop.
Being able to see so many loyal customers come to the grand opening was extremely gratifying for Mario. The store had been a long time coming. He and his brother had worked tirelessly to be able to open a second store for Elio’s, he said.
With the help of many people, the dream finally became reality. Regional Coun. Henry D’Angela was one of many people presenting the brothers with a certificate, and sharing a personal anecdote of how much Elio’s means to the community. D’Angela’s son, a baseball player, had been complaining about his feet hurting for years then finally went to Elio’s. His son was fitted for orthotics and is now able to play a game he loves without the pain in his feet.
Mayor Ted Luciani remembered walking into Elio’s on Front Street back in January and Mario confided to him plans to move. Luciani’s first thought was “Oh no! We can’t lose you!” but he remembered being relieved when Mario told him of the Pine Street plans.
