“Salute to Novato Business“
Novato is proud of, and grateful for, our local Novato Businesses. In support and gratitude for their hard work and commitment to bringing goods and services to Novato, our Parade this year honors their commitment.
The 2014 Grand Marshals are Ernie and Charlene Zunino, who recently retired after running the oldest continuously-operating family business in Novato.
Zunino’s Shoe Repair was opened in 1910 by Ernie’s grandfather Angelo. The shop has been known for more than just the repair of shoes, belts and handbags. People have been dropping in for conversation for decades, and Ernie is a font of information about Novato, past and present.
