I was asked recently to review shopping for shoes, in Clarks (links to online store). If you read this blog at all, you know I am queen of cheap! So shopping in Clarks is very rare for me.
Saying that, I was intrigued. Will I get a better quality of service/shoe, for my money? (Technically not my money, but you know what I mean). I was sent £40 in vouchers, and asked to go to the shop to purchase a pair of shoes for one of my children (not jealous at all, that I didn't get a pair!).
I decided to pick a pair for RJ, the tween. He goes through shoes at a rate of knots, so he is the best one to test quality. He is also very picky about his shoes, so he's not an easy sell. We headed down to one of the larger, out of town, stores in Newport.
It ended up being a bit of a family afternoon out! On getting to the store, I discovered that you take a number for a child's fitting. I found that a bit odd, but could see why when our turn came around.
