    Knew about that yesterday ... it means: fewer outlets for slippers for old ladies.

    Oh!

    I liked Brantano, must admit I only bought from them when the big offers were on then they were the cheapest way to get Clarks school shoes. Delivery was good and it was easy to send back the extra sizes ordered to test fit.

    The shops were helpful and once refunded a shoe bought online that we didn't like and buy something different and keep the online discount!

    Damn we also like brantano for shoes, especially school shoes. They also do school pumps all year around when many of the other stores only seem to stock them in August/September.

    The staff at our local store are lovely and brill with the kids hope they find a buyer for the stores
