We Are Open!
We are pleased to announce that as of Wednesday 2nd December 2020, our Market Harborough Factory Shop will be open and welcoming customers in to store once again.
Opening times are as follows:
Monday – Friday: 10am-5pm
We are committed to making your visit to store an enjoyable and, above all, safe experience. In addition to the same excellent and personal Loake service that you love, safety measures in line with government guidelines have been put in place to minimise the risk to our staff and customers.
Our Commitment to You
Regular hand washing and sanitation is being carried out throughout the day, particularly in between serving customers. All products are also being kept sanitised both on the sales area and behind the scenes in our stock rooms. Appropriate levels of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) is being utilised around the store and by our staff when interacting with customers for shoe fittings.
For further details on the measures in place, please feel free to speak to a member of our Market Harborough team 01858 434 962.
In order to keep the Loake retail environments safe for all, we kindly require that all visitors please keep at least 2 metres distance from other customers in store, and wear the disposable gloves provided. Hand sanitiser gel will be provided upon entry, and we ask that customers wear the disposable face masks provided during shoe fittings. It’s imperative that
we all work together to act responsibly at this time. If you are displaying Covid19 symptoms, we politely ask that you chose to visit our online Factory Shop, until it is safe for you to visit the store. Our online store and online factory shop is available 24/7 to all.
On behalf of Loake, we would like to thank our customers for your continued patience, support and loyalty. In the year that we celebrate out 140-year anniversary, we are incredibly proud that our association with fine footwear and enduring quality is loved by so many of you, and we look forward to seeing you back in store!
Our foremost dedication is to our staff and our customers and as the situation around the COVID-19 Coronovirus continues to escalate, it is important to work together to protect all of those around us. As such, we have taken the difficult but necessary decision to close all Loake stores temporarily and with immediate effect.
We would like to re-assure our customers that while Loake online retail is still open, our warehouse is currently operating with a small team of four people only, to pick and pack any orders. The large warehouse space has allowed for new ‘zones’ to be introduced, allowing staff to comfortably follow the UK Government’s rules on social distancing, as well as maintaining strong sanitisation practises. This also includes not using any communal areas at the same time.
All packages are packed into metal cages before being moved outside for the courier’s arrival at the end of the day. This guarantees that the courier can collect safely, without ever entering our building or meeting with the team. For updated information on how our courier providers are adhering to the new guidelines, please refer to Royal Mail and UPS.
