Cloggs has announced the opening of a new flagship retail shoe
store in Birmingham. The new Midlands shoe store opened its doors in
the Bull Ring Shopping Centre on September 12th, and marks a huge
milestone for the company.
Until recently, Cloggs had concentrated on growing its business online. Now, the
opening of the new store in the heart of the Bullring Shopping Centre will put it at
the forefront of one of Europe's largest shopping venues, alongside some of the
UK's largest brands.
Stocking all of the major brands Cloggs sells online in a state-of- the-art shop,
retail customers are now able to buy UGG Boots, including all the latest must-have styles
such as UGG Bailey Button and Cardy UGGs. Shoppers at the new Cloggs.co.uk Bullring
store will also be able to purchase all the classic boot brands ready for the winter
such as Dr Martens, Fitflop Boots and Timberland Boots.
Fans of Cloggs will also be pleased to know that the new Birmingham store is able to
offer a pre-order service, next day delivery and touch screen terminals where they
can view and interact with the Cloggs.co.uk website from the comfort of the shop.
Cloggs are also introducing a new MBT collection of boots and shoes, which can only
be bought from the Bullring store. Commonly known by their slogan 'The anti-shoe',
MBT is a healthy brand of footwear designed to stabilise the body by supporting the
body and preventing joint and back pain.
Nick Thomas, Cloggs.co.uk Director, said:
"The opening of this flagship store is a landmark moment for us. We’ve been able to
showcase our amazing selection of footwear brands in a retail environment, whereas
we’ve always focused entirely on online sales before. It is a great opportunity for
shoppers to get the best selection of brand-name footwear on the market at really
competitive prices. In addition to all the top brands we sell, there are store
exclusives such as the MBT collection and really handy pre-order and next day
