Charles Clinkard took their first steps into the footwear industry back in 1924, when Charles and Eveline Clinkard proudly opened their first shoe store in Middlesbrough, where it still stands today. Priding themselves on delivering high-quality shoes and first-rate customer service, Charles Clinkard has gone from strength to strength throughout their 96 year history and now successfully operates in 38 stores throughout the UK and employs a strong workforce of over 500 staff.
The company remains family owned and managed to this day, and is orchestrated by Managing Director Charles Clinkard, grandson of the eponymous founder. Through their clear business morals and commitment to the footwear industry, Charles Clinkard has gained a strong regional presence, with the company’s headquarters standing in the North East in Middlesbrough, the town where it all began.
With an unwavering commitment to well-informed customer service and an unrivalled selection of quality, branded footwear, the company has ardently built upon their reputation which has enabled them to stand out against the sea of other footwear retailers across the country.
