Creating Your New Summer Look for Less

Fitting Shoes

Those who worked for me will fondly remember (you loved it really!) all the training I put them through, how I worked far too many hours and had them dusting and organising the shop in every spare moment! I felt that we provided more than just an item to wear, we provided a service to ensure that people went away with well-fitting shoes and better overall knowledge of foot health. It’s funny Continue reading “Fitting Kid’s Shoes Yourself”
