Customer Reviews:

"I visited the Shrewsbury shop on the 21st June and wanted to say a big thank you to Carol. The customer service I received was excellent, rare these days. I will definitely be visiting again!"



Deep inside one of the prominent meanders of the longest river in the UK, the Severn, lies the quaint market town of Shrewsbury, boasting countless historical listed buildings including several examples of Tudor half-timbered houses, one of which houses the Charles Clinkard shop, smack bang in the middle of the main high street. In contrast to its surroundings, the shop is actually one of Charles Clinkard’s newest stores. Without mentioning the charming building it is housed within, the Charles Clinkard shop stands out among others in the area for its quality, great range of footwear and accessories for both men and women, and prime focus on top level service. Giving us an indication of the friendly atmosphere within, Anna the store’s manager describes one of their regulars, who gives all of the staff a kiss and a hug when she visits their shop.

A town easily explored on foot, both Shrewsbury Railway and Bus Station are 5 minutes from the store, with many council car parks in the town if you are travelling by car; there is also a park and ride service from three sites on the edge of the town.

With so much to ignite your sense of wonder in the charming little town which famously birthed Charles Darwin, stop off at Ginger & Co. on Princess Street, a mere two minutes’ walk from the store, for some quality nourishment in the form of crunchy sourdough toast topped with lashings of nut and seed sprinkled hummus. Paired with a coffee, this will keep you going for hours, enough time to maximise your day and visit some of the other exciting attractions within the small town.

Wander through The Quarry Park and visit The Dingle, a fantastic little garden oasis. Alternatively take a stroll along the riverbank and through the town’s streets to take in its historic buildings, or join one of the regular Charles Darwin trails around his hometown. Also well worth a visit, the dramatic medieval border fortress, Shrewsbury Castle which now houses the Shropshire regimental museum stands in the heart of the city, the Ditherington Flax Mill, the world’s first iron framed building (also known as the ‘Grandfather of the Skyscraper’) also only ten minutes away by car.

Shopping in the Meadowhall branch in 2005, Anna, the half French, qualified driving instructor got her first taste of Charles Clinkard. She started with the company as the assistant manager of the Nottingham store in 2006, then covered Bristol and Stratford before becoming Manager of Warwick in 2013. After 11 years with the company, her pride in the job she does motivates her to succeed. Loving the fast paced environment in her shop, she is constantly unaware what will happen next, holding the quality product she gets to sell in high regard. She says there is no typical day because no two days are the same, whether she is training staff, processing deliveries, dealing with administration or providing great customer service.

Outside of work, she enjoys listening to music both at home and at concerts, cars and vintage car rallies and the excellent combination of food and wine, which she knows a bit about, having run wine shops for ten years previous to working for Charles Clinkard! Now a true shoe connoisseur, Anna currently has her eyes on the Gabor Effect women’s boots in store, and upon winning the lottery will be imminently heading to Vivienne Westwood for something ‘bonkers’. Either that or she will have no need for shoes as she’d be on her own South Pacific Island with sand the only thing between her toes. Her favourite ever pair of shoes were some black suede heels with ribbon ties that she got from Lilley and Skinner when she was fifteen. She paid for them over 6 weeks at £2 a week and wore them for her sixteenth birthday.
