Northampton Shoe Factory Shop Re-opening Plans


Whilst most, if not all, of the Northampton shoe brands have continued in some capacity during the lockdown period, all factory shops have, understandably, been closed. But, things are finally changing and shops are starting to re-open.

Many of our favourite shoemakers have taken the time to update their online offering and ramp-up social media activity although it has not been possible to visit the retail stores, outlets, or factory shops.

With the loosening of restrictions and with non-essential shops allowed to reopen in England on the June the 15th, plans are afoot to enable customers to start visiting again whilst adhering to social distancing measures.

So, with that in mind, we have details of all of the current plans for the factory shops opening up again (some confirmed, some still planning, and some yet to provide information).

Please note that, whilst all of the information is correct as of time of posting, we are (as people keep saying!) living in extraordinary times and so we would always recommend calling the factory shop before your planned visit.

All of the numbers are included below but please be patient as not all brands are up and running - if you click the brand name you’ll link to further details including the address and map.
