What we are all about
We’ve got an amazing choice of ladies footwear and handbags sourced from the most fashionable places on the planet. There’s something for every taste, from the downright extravagant to the understated and sensible, and everything in between.
We’re proudly independent so you’ll find things here you won’t see anywhere else that we purchase on our buying trips to the shoe and accessory exhibitions across the world. But you’ll also find our take on timeless classics and new season must-haves.
Selecting comfortable but stylish brands is our number one aim, our customers want good value for money from their footwear wether they are buying online or in-store. But, they also want to have fashionable and trend led styles, this is what we look for when we go to buy stock. We cater for a wide age range, so we are always thinking of what would suit various types of people and also various lifestyles. You can even accessorise your look with our range of jewellery, scarves, wallets and purses.
We’ve got the big brands too – like Paul Green, Fitflop, Adesso, Capollini, Peter Kaiser, Geox, Le Babe, Hogl, Caprice, Makki and La Badia.

“I have been the owner of Finale for ten years now and have loved every minute of it! When I purchase brands for the shop I buy with my heart, so it is easy to inspire the customers when they come in. I always buy something a little unusual to add to the wide range of shoes and accessories we stock, whether it’s a new style from a small family run shoe makers in Italy or a gorgeous handprinted handbag. Finale is a family business and my daughter Faye joined the business in 2012. Finale has gone from strength to strength the last couple of years and I am enjoying seeing it develop both online and in store.
“I joined Finale in 2012. As the daughter of the owner, I grew up helping out with the shop and it felt like a natural progression to join the business full time when we decided to go online and expand our collections. I have learnt a lot from all of my wonderful colleagues since joining the business, and I am really excited for what the future holds for Finale. My favourite all time item has got to be a classic black heel which we stock every season which is perfect for all occasions but I also love knee-high boots - we simply have too many to choose a favourite!
“I joined Finale ten years ago. I have worked closely with Lynn ever since I started and my speciality is the window displays and organising the stock in the shop. My background is in retail where I worked my way up to becoming a buyer in the company Fenwick before joining Finale. I absolutely love the boots season and I look forward to the autumn stock arriving in Finale! My favourite all time item is Toni Pons long boots which I wear with knitted sweater dresses, pinafores and heavy 100 denier tights. My other favourite make is Paul Green.
“I joined Finale six years ago. I previously worked in Clarks for ten years where I was involved in the recruitment side of the business and training staff. A fantastic part of my job at Finale is that I get to wear our fabulous range of shoes. My favourite pair of shoes is my Bumper Boots, which often get covered in mud at a festival or walking in the Lake District but always look brand new again after a quick brush. As well as my Bumper Boots, I love our range of comfortable high heels!”
"As a recent addition to the Finale Team, I am hoping to bring to the party a dedicated, personal service, having previously run my own business where customer satisfaction was a must.
My favourite shoes are the Paul Green Brand, especially the trainers that proved so comfortable on a recent 2 day city break (I wore them all the time!). I also love the summer Vidorreta espadrille range which always have the perfect sandals for taking on holiday."
Our lovely shop
Finale is both a local shop and a destination, we have a lot of customers who live in the local area and have visited the shop for many years. We also have many customers who travel from areas such as Carlisle, Scotland, Tyne and Wear and Newcastle, as well as a strong tourist trade. Corbridge is a lovely area to work and live in, it is a thriving village full of independent shops offering wonderful items and services. We have a strong traders’ association and we meet on a regular basis to plan village events and support and encourage each other.
Many of our customers come to Finale for a personal shopping service, they want advice on styles, fitting and the opportunity to try on a selection of stylish and comfortable shoes. Some customers have requirements for wider fitting shoes, shoes to accommodate orthotics or shoes to fit feet with the lumps and bumps, that we all get as life progresses!
This is shopping as it was meant to be, away from the high street hordes, with friendly, expert staff who really know their fashion.
