Whilst it has been reported that there was going to be a large Shoe Zone opening, the biggest worry people had, was that the shop in Fore Street would be closing leaving another shop empty.
We did not want to say anything until we had received confirmation from Shoe Zone themselves as to what would be happening.
Today, 12th March 2019, Eleanor Purdon, Director in Strategic Communications, told us,
“We are happy to confirm that Shoe Zone is planning to open a Big Box, this Spring, at the Bridgwater Retail Park, offering a wide range of own-brand and third-party branded product.”
She went on to say,
“Shoe Zone is also staying in town at 40 Fore Street, and has just signed a 5 year lease there.”
