To my utter dismay, the Clark's Factory Shop in the Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre is CLOSING DOWN. I have not bought shoes anywhere else for years. Nor my family. Is this the beginning of the end???

That bit of alliteration ought to be introduced as part of drink driving test! My dentist is nearby the Clark's shop and so always had a good excuse to pop in and end up with yet another pair of Clark's finest but saving enough to treat myself to latte & muffin to recover.

That is bad news though i must admit I have tended to buy my nice sensible work shoes in there everytime I go so I do have quite a sizeable collection I will now have to work through

do they say why they are shutting?

Oh no! I get winter boots in there - they are so much more reasonably priced than elsewhere for leather boots. First Tlon Books and now this. Grrrrr...

Exactly. I'm gutted and I too asked answer, they just are shutting on 23rd Nov. Buy now to avoid disappointment etc.,

How absolutely awful. More tat. Really pushing us down market. I'm appalled.

I think 99p Stores are great.

I'm so upset about this! The Clarks shop is great, I've finaly kicked my student habit of buying cheap foot wrecking shoes and exchanged them for cheap comfy shoes, what will I do now? It's practically a public service!

Precisely! James, there are enough 99p shops already, and the market stalls sell enough tat.
