Shoezone walks from Wellington
Following the end of lease closure of Clarks Shoes in New Street, Shoezone have also announced that they are pulling out.
A Shoe Zone spokesperson commented: “It is with great regret that we are planning to close our Wellington store this Autumn, due to underperformance. We have referenced before that for the retail sector to continue to play its important role in the UK economy and town centres to serve their communities, it is vital that the Government recognises the impact of the increasing financial burden placed on businesses on the UK high street by successive governments and their policies. We would like to thank the local community for all their support during our tenure and we would welcome customers to visit us at our nearest stores in Telford’s Wrekin retail park and Southwater Arcade, or online at www.shoezone.com.”
This leaves the market, as the only dedicated shoe shop in Wellington Town Centre.
