Mr Mint

Liberty Plaza, R A De Mel Mawatha, Colombo 3


Keys. You’d think by now they’d have found some sort of replacement for these too easy to lose bits of shining, toothy metal. Utterly essential, yet absolutely infuriating, if you aren't possessed of basically superhuman organizational powers the chances are you spend a good portion of your life hunting for, fiddling with, losing, replacing and cursing – keys.



Keys. You’d think by now they’d have found some sort of replacement for these too easy to lose bits of shining, toothy metal. Utterly essential, yet absolutely infuriating, if you aren't possessed of basically superhuman organizational powers the chances are you spend a good portion of your life hunting for, fiddling with, losing, replacing and cursing – keys.

There are basically few things worse than losing your keys - car keys, house keys, office keys, suitcase keys - whatever their immediate purpose without your keys you cant access part of your life. When this happens and you need to unlock or relock the doors, latches and cases we can’t seem to exist without it’s time to head to Mr Mint. Years of key-loss experience has taught me that they are the city’s most reliable key-cutting option. While there are plenty of cheaper roadside options – the reliability of these joints leave something to be desired - I too often end up with misshaped and dysfunctional bits of steel that don’t turn the locks they should.

At around Rs. 100 a key Mr Mint, which has outlets in Liberty Plaza and Majestic city, does a fast and reliable job of giving you back access to sealed off parts of your life. The small premium you pay is worth it as you shouldn't need to haggle, go back, complain and get things cut a second time.

I've been using the MC branch for the last couple of years, and it was fine, but hadn't been for a while until this week. I just needed the soles of my sandals re-glued. When I dropped them off on Monday the women I dealt with was very unfriendly and made a big deal about them not being able to do the job for at least 24 hours. When I went back late yesterday the place was in a shambles. After waiting for ages while at least 5 staff went to and from the front of the shop, I had to identify my (unrepaired) shoes. I was then told very brusquely to wait 10 minutes. After a while I got my shoes, freshly glued. No apology. This branch has a bad atmosphere and is very dysfunctional.

This place is the worst! never trust them!
I Had a horrible experience with the Mr Mint Majestic City Branch. I gave my shoes in for a sole repair last Monday and was told to come and pick up the shoes on Thursday (6/28) afternoon. I went to the branch on Thursday (6/28), Friday (6/29) and Saturday (6/30) and was told on each day that the shoes weren't ready and to come back the next day. After calling on Monday (7/2) morning and being assured that the shoes would be ready in the afternoon, I went to pick them up. Once I arrived at the store, I was told that they cant fix the sole. I am leaving the country tomorrow morning and will not be able to have my shoes fixed. I recommend everyone to STAY AWAY from Mr Mint. Terrible service, communication and clear proof that they cannot even execute the services they claim to provide. Appalled.
