Sole Savers 20th anniversary

After 20 years in the shoe business, Tim Corrigan is the heart and soul of Virginia Sole Savers.
Tim opened his shop on October 1, 1997, with a five year plan.
“At that time, the shopping centre was really busy as we had a great Foodland that brought shoppers here,” Tim said.
“But when Foodland left, business dropped away, so I decided to ride it out in the hope business would pick up, which it did.”
“I really enjoy the customer contact and the rapport with the community.”
Tim’s business has grown over the years, keeping up with the trends and increasing the range of affordable shoes for all members of the family.
“Our summer stock is coming in now. Heaps of thongs, fashion sandals, and more great comfortable casuals. We have extended our mens workboots, fashion and casual shoe range. Brands include Rossi, Redbacks, Mongrels, Blundstones, Slatters and Borelli leather sandals.” Tim said.
Sport shoes and lightweight, brightly coloured casual shoes are coming in now ready for summer, so go and check them out.
As an agent for Web Safety, he also stocks work safety boots up to size 15.
Tim also stocks work shoes for hospitality and nursing.
Over the years, Tim has increased his supply of ladies handbags, so go in and check out the range.
In recent times, Tim brought socks into his footwear range.
“Bamboo health socks are very popular, as are the jocks and trunks.”
The everyday socks are good for diabetics and those with poor circulation as they have a looser top, plus they are highly absorbent, and great for eliminating foot odour!
To accommodate his now huge range of shoes, along with handbags, socks and jocks, Tim moved to a larger premises early last year, and hasn’t looked back!
“We’ve had a mix of customers over the past 20 years, and have changed from a country town to more of a metro town.”
Tim attributes his long running success to his motto of ‘Good family shoes at good family prices’ plus the best good old fashioned customer service and attention to detail.
“People want comfortable, durable and good value shoes, so it’s important to offer that.”
And if he hasn’t got the stock on hand, he will order it in for you.
“I’ve had great support from customers and am looking forward to good future growth with Virginia’s extensive development.”
Tim would also like to thank his staff that have supported him over the years.
Go in and check out Tim’s shoe range, or check out Facebook, with the shop open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm, and Saturdays 9am to 5pm.
