Shoezone stepping into new premises in Mansfield

Posted onPosted on 9th Nov

A retailer has taken a big step in ensuring it can keep on providing Mansfield shoppers with a range of shoes by revealing plans to relocate into much larger premises.

Shoe Zone, currently in Market Place, closed on November 10, and will reopen in its new, refurbished store in West Gate, on November 20.

The new store will stock popular brands such as Lotus, Heavenly Feet, Jana Softline, S.Oliver and Gola as well as Shoe Zone’s signature affordable shoe and accessories range.

Opening Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5.30pm and Sunday 10am and 4pm, the new store will see the creation of two new jobs.

Russell Smith has been appointed as the store manager for the new shop, which is located where the Dorothy Perkins shop was.

He said: “We do so well in Mansfield and have needed larger premises for some time. We have quite a few regulars and this new shop will cater for them and for new customers alike.”

Russell added that Shoezone tries to help all its customers, even selling Vegan-friendly faux leather boots RE-LIFE.

The shop is busy most of the time, but particularly busy times include Back To School, with Russell claiming his record for one particular day was 469 pairs of shoes sold.

The news of the new store has been welcomed by Daryl McGreade, from Mansfield BID, who said: “Once again, this is great for Mansfield town centre. It’s positive to see a national retailer invest in new premises right in the heart of town.”

The new store in West Gate is part of Shoe Zone’s rollout of its Big Box concept stores.

Anthony Smith, Chief Executive at Shoe Zone, commented: “We are excited to launch the new store in Mansfield and offer customers even more access to our popular range of stylish and affordable shoes and accessories.

“We’ll open with a fantastic collection of winter shoes, wet weather boots and slippers for the impending winter season. We can’t wait to show customers in store.”

The Market Place shop was previously branded as a Shoefayre shop, until Shoezone acquired the brand in the mid-2000s.
