In addition to our prices increasing on the 1st July, we're also going to be discontinuing some models.
We're going to be discontinuing some items because we do have a vast collection and in challenging times of rising costs, it is important to look at ways to be as efficient as possible in our manufacturing so that we can continue to improve delivery times and service, as part of our plan to continue offer the best value in British made dance footwear.
We have some shoe styles which we sell extraordinary amounts of and some that were maybe introduced a while ago, were popular for a while, but aren't so high in demand anymore, or we might have something very similar that just sells a lot more so it would make sense to focus on that. When we get orders for some of our less popular shoes, it slows down the flow of our production and essentially makes everything we make take a little longer.
So we have made some decisions! There is a list of styles below that will no longer be available to order from 1st July, so if there is something there that you'd like then now might be your last chance!
Ladies Ballroom & American Smooth
Ladies Teaching Shoes
CK Line Shoe - Black Nubuck/BlackSilverHologram (alternative: NEW Artiste SS - Black Nubuck/BlackSilver Hologram: launching 3rd July)
What we're doing is just trimming some shoes and narrowing our focus, which longer term we hope will enable us to improve our service.
We do appreciate that one of the things that make us wonderful is that we offer such great choice! So in the not too distant future, we do plan to introduce some new styles! By doing this now, it will allow us to ensure that whenever we do add to our collection, it's in a clever way that helps with our manufacturing, and doesn't slow down the flow of our most popular shoes.
