The Shoe Centre Ltd is owned by Sean and Sarah Nicks and this is their story so far...
So, we met through our parents’ businesses and became good friends and for quite a few years it stayed that way.
Sarah’s parents made the decision to retire and Sarah took over the shop in Minehead. It was at this point that our friendship became a lot closer and the selling appointments became a little more frequent! We eventually got our act together in 1999 and celebrated the millennium as Girlfriend and Boyfriend. We purchased 8 The Strand, Dawlish, Devon, an existing shoe shop, in May of 2001 from friends Pete and Bet Philips within the shoe trade and got married in the June. Based on the success of this tiny shoe shop we expanded into the shop next door and now feel we offer a good quality display of branded shoes – something for everyone.
Having both been bottle fed shoes from the beginning of our lives we believe that we have combined the personal customer service of 1928, along with a little mix of the market ‘banter’ and brought it all up to date with THE SHOE CENTRE experience of purchasing from us in our shop in Dawlish or on our on line site where the experience continues.
