NYC Luggage Repair

Where can I get luggage wheels repaired in New York?

So, I stupidly decided to drag my luggage across midtown instead of getting a cab, destroying the wheels in the process. Can anyone recommend somewhere to get the wheels repaired replaced? Otherwise the bag is in good condition.

Modern Leather Goods on 2 West 32nd Street is an authorized Samsonite luggage repair place - maybe call them and see if they do other types of suitcases instead? (obvsly if yours is samsonite then you are good to go)

Mine isn't a genuine Samsonite, but it's one of the brands listed on their repair page.

Thanks, elizardbits! This place would never have stood out from the others among the random google results I was getting. Looks like a trip to Koreatown is in store for me next week.

Fwiw, a lot of shoe repair places also repair luggage.

Thirty bucks per wheel, fixed while I wait. Done and done. Thanks again!
