So, it’s 1960, and this year seen the opening of our fourth Charles Clinkard branch in Northallerton.
Sitting between the scenic delights of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, Northallerton is a natural destination for visitors keen to explore all that glorious North Yorkshire has to offer. Our store which sits directly on the high street is a focal point for passers-by and is still very much with the company today.
Another venture which took place in the 60s was the founding of Intershoe, a wholesale business which son, Roger Clinkard, founded. The focus of this project was to innovatively import Scandinavian winter boots, however, over the years this has developed into a whole range of products from summer styles to shoes, trainers and more.
Intershoe remains a core part of the Clinkard Group and we currently represent Gabor Shoes across the UK. Gabor products are for the modern-day women who are always on the move but want to look stylish and evidently feel comfortable. With a vast range of sizes and fits available Gabor Shoes are renowned for assisting those who struggle to find stylish footwear in larger shapes.
Ass exclusive partners you can shop the new autumn/winter collection here at Charles Clinkard.
