A recent interview I did for BIPC Newcastle as part of their High Street Heros Instagram series and my top piece of advice...
We recently won an award which was a huge surprise but also fantastic news for us all at Finale and our customers too. This is the article written by Ian Wylie with all the details that appeared in our local magazine;
Top National Award For Northumberland Village Shop
Cluster of Corbridge independent businesses thriving despite national High Street trend.
A village shop in Northumberland at the heart and ‘sole’ of the local community has won a top national award.
Finale Shoes and Accessories of Corbridge was named Fashion Independent Footwear Retailer of the Year at the 2019 Footwear Industry Awards in Birmingham.
Baby its cold outside...Well despite a mild start it seems we are finally having a 'proper' Winter - I am really pleased. I love wrapping up in scarves and gloves with boots on and I don't want to be having cold drinks instead of a gorgeous hot chocolate because it's too warm outside!
The shoes and boots always look lovely in the shop but it’s nice to have images of them on feet and in different locations too, this helps people imagine how they will fit into their wardrobes and lifestyles. So every season we do a photo shoot, this is one of these things that sounds very glamorous but is actually something we spend ages planning and is pretty hard work but very worth it when you get the shots at the end!
Can you imagine working in Finale and being surrounded by shoes and handbags all day long then having to watch people try them on and look fabulous in them! It is always one of the questions we are asked most often - how do you choose what to have for yourselves each season and what to wear to work?
