Customer Reviews:

Visited the Nottingham branch this morning to buy 2 pairs of school shoes with my daughter wanting Lelli Kelly shoes. We were took into the shop straight away by Joshua and he fitted both children no problem, both came away happy with their choice of shoe.

Massive queue at Clarks, but no queue or anyone waiting at Charles Clinkard Nottingham. Fantastic service, nothing was too much trouble. One pair of school shoes, a pair of trainers and gym shoes purchased. Thank you for excellent customer service.

Just to say I had a great experience in your Nottingham store yesterday. Yvette was so helpful and friendly without being too pushy. I work in retail myself and know what customers are like. She is an asset to your store.

About the Shop

Our Nottingham store is now located upon Long Row, not far from its previous location within Intu Victoria Centre, but has stood on the streets of the city since 2005. The store stands out due to its extensive choice of brands and core focus on customer service, and, its location is a one-stop destination for the whole family, offering an unrivalled selection of men’s, women’s and children’s footwear and accessories. All of the stores regulars are memorable to John the shop’s manager and his team, especially those who have a laugh and enjoy the store experience.

Convenient parking is available, along with a bus station. Nottingham Railway Station is a leisurely 15 minute walk away.

About the Area

A legendary city, Nottingham was once home to one of the most famous outlaws in the UK, Robin Hood. There is still a buzz surrounding the legend within the city, which is also known for its history of lace making - a bustling city of the trade in the Industrial Revolution. Birthplace of both Boots the Chemist and Raleigh bikes; it is definitely worth sticking around in Nottingham after your visit to our store.

Some of England’s oldest pubs are found within Nottingham’s streets, including a Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem which dates back to 1189. Stop off for a pint beneath its dramatic stone ceilings before wandering round the city’s historic Lace Market neighbourhood. One hour outside of the city stands the magnificent Major Oak, England’s largest Oak tree within the renowned Sherwood Forest. It is a city of modern entwined with historic, and it is jam-packed full of unique eateries and coffee shops. Kitty Café offers ‘Kitty Meals’ made up of food items like a pizza or panini, a drink and one of their enticing cakes for £12.95. The quirk is that you eat it within their spacious interior, which is full of colourful seating.. and cats! More like a playground for the cute rescue cats that live there, you can fuss over the felines as you relax.

A city of many attractions, also worth visiting are the Nottingham caves, the Castle and the Galleries of Justice. If you visit the city in November we recommend tying in your visit with the Robin Hood Beer Festival. It’s not just for the real ale drinkers; you will also find a great choice of food and entertainment including excellent live music. 

About the Manager

Typical days for John, the stores manager involve handling deliveries, stock transfers, refreshing displays and general housekeeping of the store to ensure both staff and customers have the optimum environment in which to shop or work. John gets to the store at 8am so he can get a running start as soon as he’s had his morning coffee. His first priorities are usually back office admin and pulling stock for website sales, but once customers enter the store; his full focus is on them, ensuring they are being looked after to the highest degree by his incredible team. John overcomes anything thrown at him during each unique day, and has the store ready for the following day’s business once the doors are closed. 

Combining excellent service with a fun experience is John’s greatest achievement as Nottingham’s store manager. The competitive manager believes that you spend a lot of time at work, so you may as well do something you are good at and enjoy! Working at the Nottingham-founded Gordon Scott Shoes in 1998, which had strong ties to Charles Clinkard, John greatly admired Clinkard’s and was delighted to get to work with the company, and then for the company in June 2017 when a redundancy left his many years of shoe experience inactive. He honed his footwear knowledge buying ladies shoes for a national retailer for 19 years prior to this!

John recommends footwear by the Spanish casual brand Pikolinos because of their quality leather, and ladies Gabor shoes for their consistent fit and comfort, shown by their loyal brand following. His favourite pair of shoes ever purchased are some classic Cheaney Brogues which he’s had for more than 12 years - the colour, leather and the fit are still superb. When first purchased he received countless compliments on their smart appearance, and over 12 years on they have developed that sought after ‘vintage look’, so still draw great comments. Adidas Stan Smith trainers have also been his must have accessory over the years, owning many pairs whether they were in fashion or not. Upon winning the lottery he would make the easy purchase of some tan Trickers brogues with an unyielding thick leather sole.

With a past playing lead roles in the Nottingham West Music and Drama Society’s productions of Guys & Dolls, Calamity Jane and South Pacific, John spends his down-time visiting micro pubs, drinking real ale, and watching sports. As his better half says, if it’s got a ball in it, John will watch it!
