"I kept a lot of the old with the new," said Lucas Wren regarding the interior of Wren's Shoe Repair. He accomplished this by including details such as the original sign that hung at his father's business. Lucas Wren also has his father's original cash register from 1981 that sits in a glass case under the original counter. The counter was seen as a good luck charm, so when it came time for Lucas Wren to re-open, they had to find and purchase the counter again for the new shop.
