Shoeing in success

Family owned shoe retailer Charles Clinkard has settled into its new £3m head office and warehouse at Cannon Park, Middlesbrough.

With space now to store up to 250,000 pairs of shoes, the warehouse beside the Royal Mail sorting office gives extra capacity to cope with rising online sales.

Managing director Charles Clinkard says: “We’re ideally placed now to satisfy customer demand.” This new energy efficient home opens in the company’s 92nd year. Clinkard’s grandparents started the business, which now has 33 stores across the country and employs more than 552 people nationwide.
