About the Business
Edward Bell first opened his Buxton shop's door in 1890. In 1960 Keith Martin acquired the business at the age of 21, expanding it's high-street presence and developing the brand's reputation as a premium retailer of quality footwear. In 2003 Keith's son Edward joined the business, bringing in 7 years experience from River Island and Debenhams. The father and son team launched Bells Shoes' first online store in 2007, all run from a small room above our Buxton store. The online business grew rapidly as our brand recognition increased and as the company expanded into retail on Ebay and the Amazon marketplace.
Today, Bells Shoes is based in a purpose built office and warehouse, employing over 50 staff who are dedicated to serving tens of thousands of customers world-wide. Our store in Buxton continues to serve the local community, with the wider family business spanning a larger area with the inclusion of 3 Clarks franchise stores as well as an additional independent store in Leek, Staffordshire.
2015 will see further expansion of the business with the acquisition of two new warehouses, new brands and an increased international offering.
Bells Shoes prides itself on providing an extensive range of products at some of the industry's lowest prices. Our experienced buying team carefully select our products from a constantly increasing range of high quality brands; each selected for their style, fit, durability and value for money.
