Cloggs.co.uk, the Birmingham based shoe retailer, has been
shortlisted in the Drapers Footwear Awards 2010.
The 2000 sq ft Cloggs.co.uk store next to Selfridges in the Bullring opened in
September 2009 and is one of the finalists in the Best New Store category.
The awards celebrate the best footwear independents, multiple specialists and high
street fashion chains, as well as recognising the best brands of the year and the
most promising student footwear designers. This year, names such as Schuh, Barratts
and Clarks are among the contenders for the various awards.
Cloggs.co.uk, which is run by local brothers Nick and Chris Thomas and business
partner Damian Scarlett, faces stiff competition from The Natural Shoe Store in
London, Gerry McGuire’s in Ireland, Lily T in Buckinghamshire, Shoefair in Northern
Ireland and SoleLution in Bristol.
Nick Thomas, company director of Cloggs.co.uk, said: "We're really pleased that
the Bullring store has made it onto the shortlist.
"As far as shoe shops go it's pretty unique, incorporating many of the features of
our online shop, such as free next day delivery if the customer requests it and
access to the full range of available styles via touch screen internet terminals.
"We also offer the same deals and discounts in store as we do online, which is
unusual amongst most high street retailers.
"Our focus is on offering an extensive selection of seasonal fashion footwear,
quality customer service and competitive prices.
"It's an honour to be shortlisted for these prestigious awards and we’re really
looking forward to the event."
