A COUPLE have opened up a new shop in Nailsea to ensure people can still buy footwear in their local high street.

Anthony, who lives in Clevedon, said: “The lady who owned the shop here before was my partner’s mother and we decided to make sure there was still a shoe shop in Nailsea.

“My partner worked for her mum so she’s always been involved in selling shoes.

“I’ve been involved in all different aspects of retail. We just want to make sure there are still shops in the high street, not just charity shops.”

The store stocks adult shoes including brands such as Sketchers and Rieker and is a specialist in wide-fitting footwear.
