Charles Clinkard Wins Award for Best Multiple RetailerThursday, 21 June 2012
Charles Clinkard is having an exciting 2012 so far. With 36 stores
nationwide, Charles Clinkard have a wide range of brands in children’s, men’s and women’s shoes, the long standing independent footwear retailer has closed a deal with BT Expedite to install its Connected Retailer multichannel system. As the company continues to grow, the need to integrate Charles Clinkard’s on-line and in-store activities has increased. This exciting news has been announced alongside the update of Charles Clinkard’s recent win at the Footwear Industry Awards. Clinkard won the award for best multiple retailer and beat stiff competition from the likes of Russell & Bromley, John Lewis and other household names. The company believe their success has derived from an acute attention to customer service.
This is an exciting win for a home-grown British company who have been running since 1924 and who are based in the North East. They certainly like to keep tradition going, as Charles Clinkard’s current managing director is the Grandson of the company’s founding members. This really is testament to the standard of service that runs through the Clinkard family’s veins. This was further cemented by the fact that Charles himself was nominated for a “Personality of the year Award”. The continued success of this long-standing British family run business during the year of the Jubilee is something to be proud of.
