MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

WSFA 12 News Defenders are learning more about the strange disappearance of the store owner of Brenner's shoe repair. We first reported in November that several customers were looking for their shoes and purses with no sign of the owner.

WSFA 12 News now has information on the location of about 200 pairs of those shoes.

Al Dunn works at Hall and Smith Shoe Repair store in the Normandale Shopping Center in Montgomery. He says the owner of the building where Brenner's was located called him in February with an ultimatum.

"He said he hadn't heard from Reginald in eight months and that somebody needed to come get those shoes and that stuff out there or he was going to set it on the street so I spent my money to get that stuff out there," Al Dunn said.

Al Dunn says he was contacted because he is the brother of the missing Brenner's owner, Reginald Dunn.

Al Dunn says he hasn't spoken with his brother in eight months but does know he is alive and well. Reginald Dunn reportedly communicates with other relatives and is still in Montgomery.

Al Dunn says he can only speculate like everyone else as to why his brother suddenly stopped showing up to work and suddenly closed up shop without alerting customers.

If you stop by Brenner's Shoe Factory on Forest Avenue and peep through the window, you can see the building has been cleared. You'll also notice a sign that says it's no longer in business and that you can bring your shoes and purses to Hall and Smith Repair Store.

"Since I was working part-time here. I decided to bring everything over here and call everybody and let them know there shoes were here. You got tickets and some of them don't have names on them," Dunn said.

There are boxes of shoes including many have molded because they have been in storage for so long. There is even a box full of police boots.

Al Dunn says many customers had pre-paid for services that were never rendered but he has since made the repairs.

"They done already paid him and he done spent the money," Al Dunn said.

There are several shoes and purses without names and contact numbers.

If you think your shoes may be at Hall and Smith Shoe Repair call 334-288-7872. The store is open Tuesday through Saturday.
