U.N. Luggage is one of the noteworthy luggage stores in Winnipeg. Clients rave about its lineup of quality brands including Briggs & Riley, Eagle Creek, Herschel, Osprey, and Samsonite.

It also offers luggage repair services and works on various types of travel bags, namely wheeled luggage, travel totes, duffel bags, and business cases.

In terms of repair types, U.N. Luggage currently fixes broken handles, zippers, and wheels and patches up holes and tears.

One of the strong points of this repair centre is that it accommodates luggage that are still under warranty and with expired coverage.

We think this makes it more convenient for clients to find reliable repair facilities that specialise in select luggage brands.

Another strong point is that it extends its repair services to luggage with airline damage, which is something that other repair centres don’t offer.

It’s worth mentioning that U.N. Luggage will require you to show photos of your luggage so the repair staff can assess which services to do and how much they’ll cost.

Fortunately, the repair centre is right at the luggage store and doesn’t require appointments! 

The luggage store also accepts drop-ins during its operational hours, although be mindful that repairs are only done on weekdays. 

We recommend scheduling your repairs so you’ll get your luggage in time for your next travel.

As for workmanship quality, clients highlight the reliability and professionalism of Jon. Apparently, he is knowledgeable about the shop’s luggage collection and is competent in doing repairs.

That said, an area we think U.N. Luggage should work on is the workmanship and availability of other staff. 

It’s a bummer to hear that some of the staff commit inventory errors and aren’t that responsive to clients’ queries and complaints.


  • Services various types of travel bags
  • Accommodates luggage with airline damage
  • Repair centre is on-site
  • No appointments needed


  • Repairs are only done on weekdays
  • Could improve on workmanship and availability

Customer Reviews

Love them for their professionalism and great service

“Everyone at UN Luggage gives you great service. Any question or concern you may have they handle it with professionalism. Specially Jon who was fantastic with communication at the store and through email to assist me with buying a Nomatic Travel Pack. Would for sure recommend to anyone looking for a unique product that would fit your personal needs!” – Jonathan Bailey

Pricey, but worth the money

“This is an excellent place to shop for travel necessities like luggage  and backpacks. There is an excellent selection of merchandise and the staff is knowledgeable and polite. The prices can be a little expensive,  but bear in mind that is because they sell quality products like Briggs and Riley, Osprey, and Tumi just to name a few. Their prices though are competitive and are not inflated. If you are looking for some quality luggage or accessories, complimented with excellent no-pressure sales advice this is the place.” – Brian Solomon

Nik’s Shoe Repair is well-loved for its superb workmanship when it comes to fixing and restoring all kinds of footwear. 

But did you know that it’s also exceptionally good at fixing luggage and other travel bags?

In terms of services, the centre currently accommodates repairs for zippers, elastics, back lining, and tears or holes in leather.

If you’re looking for custom work, we’re happy to report that Nik’s accepts requests for bespoke repairs, such as wheel changes, leather replacements, and dye jobs for all kinds of leather bags.

While the luggage repair centre currently accommodates all types of travel bags, we think it’s wise to only bring in your luggage here if its warranty has expired.

Otherwise, you’ll revoke your warranty coverage before you get to maximise whatever perks your luggage brand offers.

Of course, the company wouldn’t be where it is today without the competence of its owner and hands-on staff, Nik.

With over 30 years of experience in mending leather goods, we’re told that Nik is the one you should look for if you want attention to detail and superior repair quality.

And good news: Nik’s Shoe Repair Shop has other repair staff that are ready to welcome clients!

It’s also a plus that we didn’t have to make appointments prior to coming to the store. We think that this makes it easier for clients to get their luggage repaired at their earliest convenience.

That said, we’re not so pleased to learn that the repair quality isn’t always superb. From what we’re told, some of the repair work didn’t hold much after just a few weeks.

On the bright side, we’re pleased that Nik’s staff are open to redoing the repairs for free and with far superior quality.

It’s also a bummer to learn that some of the staff aren’t that responsive. 

We hope that the repair centre will improve in these areas because we think that responsiveness and precise workmanship are factors that give good value for money.


  • Diverse selection of repairs
  • Accepts requests for custom work/repairs
  • No appointments needed


  • Could work on availability
  • May need to fine-tune workmanship

Customer Reviews

Appreciate Nik’s great attention to detail

“Old school attention to detail. The work is quality, the price is fair and the owners are lovely. Will keep on coming back time and time again. Thank you Nik.” – Dayancho

Recommended for repairs for any bags

“I broke the zipper on a new magnetic makeup palette. It would have cost me a lot of time, trouble and who knows how much cash to send it back. I took it in to Nik’s friendly little shop and the wonderful lady fixed it in a few minutes! They’re very kind and talented people. Thank you Nik’s Shoe Repair” – DeeAsh

Bentley is another prime store to look for noteworthy luggage brands, such as American Tourister, Briggs & Riley, Ricardo, Samsonite, and Swiss Gear.

In terms of luggage repair services, this store accommodates various types of damages, ranging from broken zippers and handles to tears or cracks on the main luggage body and wheel replacements.

We also have to give it to this store for servicing airline damages. Note that Bentley may require you to file a report of any damages to your carrier – with a copy to be attached to your warranty claim – before bringing your luggage in for repairs.

That said, we’re thankful that the luggage store has a section on its website listing all the brands it carries and their terms and conditions regarding airline damage.

We’re also giving plus points as the shop notifies clients if their requests for repairs have been approved and if their luggage have been sent to the repair facility.

As for the quality, we’re pleased to hear that the staff are competent in dealing with all sorts of damages.

Clients highlight that the staff carefully assesses the damages first before deciding on the repairs and mentioning any fees. 

It just goes to show that they are after being transparent with clients and giving them value for their money as much as possible.

Another favourable point of this luggage store is that it has multiple branches in Winnipeg. 

We love that there are more than one luggage repair centres to visit in case one isn’t available at the moment.

While we appreciate Bentley for not requiring any appointments prior to visiting, it’s a little disappointing that it currently only accommodates repairs for select luggage brands.

Another slight downside is that it will only work with the brands’ specific replacement parts. 

Inventory is also reportedly limited, which makes it more difficult to find specific parts for some models.

We find this a little inconvenient as clients will need to check if the store carries parts for their luggage models.

You might as well take your luggage elsewhere for fixes or replacements if you find that this store doesn’t have any parts for your model available.


  • Repairs different damage types
  • Multiple branches


  • Only works with select luggage brands
  • Limited replacement parts available

Customer Reviews

Love how they magically repaired my suitcase handle

“Very helpful staff. I had brought my suitcase into the store to enquire about repairs re: the handle wouldn’t extend. (It was quite annoying- I’d gone on vacation and had to carry the suitcase everywhere because I couldn’t roll it behind me.) The staff at Bentley looked into the repair policies, and when I went to demonstrate to them that the handle wasn’t working, it extended! I had tested it so many times prior to bringing it in – that handle was STUCK and would not extend! But, I guess the ladies at Bentley are magical, because suddenly everything was working! I was kind a bit embarrassed by the whole situation, but the staff was very kind and made me feel better, and we had a good chuckle about the “magically repaired” suitcase.” – Theresa B.

Thankful for their professional and friendly staff

“The black lady who was working tonight June 1 around 8pm gave me a excellent customer service. That’s what a call a perfect service! Friendly and professional.” – Tremblay Laurie
