A BUDGET shoe store on a busy street in Bournemouth is set to close in the future.
Shoezone in Wimborne Road, Winton, has several signs on the front of the shop window saying ‘CLOSING’, but despite this the business cannot confirm whether or not it will close.
We contacted Shoezone several times over two weeks for answers, but they declined to comment or confirm if the store is closing or when it will close.
Store staff do not know when the store will close or if it will be made redundant or transferred to the other stores in Boscombe and Poole.

Staff believe the store could close in January due to alleged rent issues.
Shoezone won’t comment on this, saying only, “Unfortunately, we can’t comment.”
Shoezone has over 410 stores across the UK, including one in Christchurch Road, Boscombe and one in High Street, Poole.
The Leicester-based company is known for selling shoes at low prices and, according to the company, sells around 16 million pairs a year.
Last year, the company made headlines when chief financial officer Peter Foot was replaced by Terry Boot.
