Customer Reviews: 

I just wanted to thank your staff,  Chris and Yvonne at your Buckingham store who were exceptional kind, patience and absolute super stars when we visited last Thursday.

I ordered a pair of shoes from the website, they were too big. I phoned customer service the gentleman I spoke to was very helpful and told me they had a pair in stock in the Buckingham shop also provided me with their phone number. I phoned the shop and they put them by for me. I picked them up that morning and both ladies in the shop were very helpful. So helpful I ordered another pair of shoes as well.

Great customer service at your kids shop in Buckingham today. Emmie who helped us was fantastic. Staff like that are gold dust!

About the Shop

Starting out as Malcolm Hudson Shoes for over 25 years and then becoming Charles Clinkard in 2008, our Buckingham store on Meadow Walk has a long history as a shoe shop for over 40 years. With a dedicated children’s shoe shop close by on Meadow Row, the best place to park if you're planning to visit both stores is the Cornwall’s Meadow Car Park next to Waitrose. If you are heading to the area via train, the nearest stations are Milton Keynes (Central Station) and Bicester (North Station), both conveniently linked to Buckingham via the X5 bus. 

At the helm of both stores is Chris, Buckingham’s manager who drives their focus on top customer service combined with a great range of men’s women’s, boys and girls footwear and accessories. This, complete with a specialist kid’s fitting service means that the store is proud to be the only shoe business in town boasting a very good loyal customer base. Even Isla Sinclair is a regular!

Helping Chris run the busy stores is Deputy Manger, Yvonne who has been at the Buckingham store for over 30 years. She now has customers whose shoes she'd fitted as young children bringing their own children in for their first shoes. Both are a credit to the team and a great influence on the younger staff at our Buckingham store.

About the Area

Home of the British Grand Prix, the small market town of Buckingham is put prominently on the map because of its historically significant motor racing circuit, Silverstone which was built on a World War II Royal Air Force bomber station, RAF Silverstone. The River Great Ouse winds through the tree lined town, which features cosy eateries like the Buckingham Tea Rooms offering a wide selection of delicious homemade and traditional treats such as a savoury cheddar and chive scone with the tea room's homemade kiwi and red pepper chutney - yum! Alternatively for a quick bite to eat after a hefty day of shopping, head to Gyre & Gimble, the artisan coffee shop offering delicious coffees and sweet treats - literally one minute on foot from Charles Clinkard’s doors.

For a taste of the local area, visit the Old Gail Museum (a former prison dating back to 1748) or relax in one of the picnic areas within the bends of the winding River Great Ouse. Time your visit to our store well, and stop by at the Silverstone race track on your way home, sampling one of their countless motor events on throughout the year.

About the Manager

Spreading his time between both the adults and children’s store, Chris starts his working day around 8am to prepare both for opening. Each day is different, with variable tasks like deliveries, staff training, reports to write and emails to keep him busy, as well as his fundamental focus on high quality customer service. The great customer service in store is one of Chris’s main motivators for success, combined with his fun and hardworking store team in addition to the great wider company team. Like a true store manager, he wants his store to do well and to be the best.

A former Circus performer in Mexico and current Lindy Hop teacher in Oxford, Chris wanted to put his energy into working for a business where he was valued as an individual. Charles Clinkard was the perfect fit and he has now worked for the company for eight years (starting in 2012). When he finds time to unwind, Chris loves movies, swing dancing, playing on his Xbox and eating plenty of chocolate.

Now a fully-fledged shoe expert, Chris loves ladies styles from both Rieker and Regarde Le Ciel which are both known for their overall softness and support. For Men he recommends brands such as Anatomic & Co Peter for their high levels of comfort, and Merrell for their dedication to producing quality walking shoes and sandals. His favourite shoes ever bought were from The North Face before he worked for Charles Clinkard - and they were only £14! Upon winning the lottery, he will be stocking up on Merrell shoes because he says ‘They do what they say on the box’!
