Can’t stand the smell in their shops 🤢

Jane10 Tue 23-Jun-20 15:15:18

Oh no! Where will we get our cheap ugg boots and daps? grin

Oopsadaisy3 Tue 23-Jun-20 15:25:28

I walked into one of their shops when it first opened in our small town( it didn’t last long) and the smell made me heave , I had to walk straight out again.

Perhaps we can buy onesies with feet attached? (Think “Gruffalo” outfit!)

Oh please god no! What will I do without godawful fake designer clumpy boots? grin x

Perhaps they’ll have re-opened before the school holidays grin

Lisagran I think that's the point they are permanently closing down

annodomini Tue 23-Jun-20 16:31:55

What's Shoezone?

Lisagran Tue 23-Jun-20 16:45:41

There’s a backstory ninathenana grin

I buy all my slippers there.

Bellanonna Tue 23-Jun-20 17:28:33

Oh dear. Someone will be bereft. Mind you, she/he hasn’t been around for a while. Maybe he’s left school?

MawB Tue 23-Jun-20 17:43:14

Probably why they had to close!

This company was already struggling last year and the boss handed over the reins to a replacement.

Like many businesses the pandemic may be the final nail in the coffin for them.

Sad and worrying news for their 4,000 employees.

When I've been really hard up in the past Shoe Zone's been a godsend. There's probably a lot of families now that can't afford to shop at the upper end of the market. I find some of the above comments very insensitive.

Lisagran Tue 23-Jun-20 19:15:20

Someone ought to come clean with bohemian and Grannynsnnywanny. They think we’re being rude......

Shoezone also sell Clarks, Heavenly Feet and Skechers and at the moment BOGOF. Great for me as I live in Skechers.

Careful MawB you'll have your post deleted wink

Can anyone advise me where I can now buy my plimsolls, and are they suitable for wearing to Bingo ( when it starts up again) or for going down the pub? I don’t want to pay more than £3.99.

EllanVannin Tue 23-Jun-20 22:12:46

I've never heard of the place----can't be the North West.
