Chicago’s vey own third generation Locksmiths
Since 1992, I have been depending on Felix Lock service for all my keys and locks needs. David is third generation owner who has the same passion about the business as his father Edward who was a true master locksmith and always welcomed you with smile. If you walked in the store at any time of the day, he used to drop everything and helped right away and which is even true today with David who has the same pride and enthusiasm as his dad.
Amazing, a business of locks and keys which was started with David’s grandfather Felix Hartung in 1916 still remains all times favorite of mine and many others Chicagoans in the uptown Chicago.
I am afraid if David decided to retire, it might be end of an era and nostalgia of the past.
My needs of on demand keys and locks will become wants!
