Footwear retailer The Natural Shoe Store has closed after 40 years of trading, shuttering its two London stores and website.
It appointed Jonathan Sinclair of Sinclair Harris as liquidator earlier this month, following a creditor’s voluntary liquidation.
The retailer had stores at 70 Neal Street in Covent Garden and 325 King’s Road in Chelsea.
In a message to customers on its website, it said: “We are very sorry to announce that The Natural Shoe Store is now closed for business. This includes both our stores and website.
“We would like to thank you all for being such loyal customers for the last 40 years. It has been our pleasure to share our love of unique and amazing footwear with you.
“Please be assured that we will continue to honour any orders made with us or resolve any outstanding issues.”
The Natural Shoe Store’s parent company, The Boot Tree Limited, posted turnover of £3.2m in its most recent results for the year to 30 November 2016, down 13% on 2015. Operating losses for the year totalled £197,039, down from £528,643 in 2015.
The Natural Shoe Store launched in 1977 and says it was the first footwear store on London’s Neal Street.
