Customer Reviews:


Taking pride of place on one of the major arterial boulevards leading from Oxford’s city centre, the Banbury Road location in the delightfully named suburb of Summertown stands out for its product mix and focus on top customer service, as well as being the only one of its kind in the surrounding area. Retailing shoes even before Charles Clinkard became resident (previously Michael Greenwood), the store is a place where customers are retained; many of the staff watching children grow and develop from the day they fit their first shoes! The store, ran by Keighley, offers men, women, boys and girls an excellent range of footwear and accessories, and has even survived a fire on its premises in 2014.

Travel to the store by train, and your nearest station is Oxford Parkway Railway station, which is linked to the store via an 8 minute bus ride along the same road. Visit the store by car, and you can park free of charge right outside the store for 30 minutes, or at Marks and Spencer Simply Food, a one minute walk away (directly across the road) and costs only £1 per hour for up to five hours.

Set in a city revolving around the oldest and possibly most prestigious universities in the English speaking world, our Charles Clinkard store in its suburb of Summertown holds many opportunities for a top class cup of coffee. In addition, grab a gourmet picnic bag or platter from Taylor’s Gourmet Sandwich and Deli Company to revive yourself after a successful shop, stopping by at the local farmer’s market opposite the store if you visit on a Sunday.

Too many things will draw your interest in Oxford- you won’t know where to begin! Many historical buildings remain following WWII, possibly due to the fact Hitler intended to use Oxford as his capital city if he conquered England, so did not bomb it. Great examples being the awe-inspiring Radcliffe Cinema and the Oxford University buildings including Christ Church (the great hall was used as inspiration for Hogwarts Grand Hall, and its staircase was used in many of the Harry Potter films). Go for a drink in The Eagle and Child pub, an old haunt of a writing group including CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien. Interestingly, the girl Lewis Carroll based his famous Alice in Wonderland character upon was the daughter of Henry Liddell, the dean of Christ Church. Finally, visit Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum, the world’s first ever public museum.

Standing at the helm of the store’s success are its manager Keighley, and Assistant Manager, Emma. Starting her journey with the company as an Assistant Manager at the Oxford branch in 2010, becoming Manager was a natural transition for Keighley.

Emma, the store’s assistant manager (and current acting manager while Keighley covers another manager’s maternity leave), reveals that the Oxford store team is like one big happy family, their customers included! Motivating her to succeed in her role is her 3 year old daughter, and the rewarding feeling of exceeding her customers’ expectations! Also a Brownie Leader, she began her thirteen year journey at the store as their Saturday girl while she was at school, progressing to a full time sales advisor when she finished her exams. Constantly evolving, she then became their Weekend Supervisor, Full Time Supervisor then a few years later, Assistant Manager. Now a footwear fanatic like everyone else at Charles Clinkard, she currently recommends the Maria Lya Priscilla women’s fringe moccasins due to their comfort and on-trend Nubuck leather design.
