A NEW shoe shop is due to open in Barnstaple High Street this weekend.
The Hotter Shoe Store will create 10 jobs when it opens at 31 High Street, next to the Cex Entertainment Exchange store, on Saturday.
The store will sell British-made shoes designed to be stylish yet comfortable.
Hotter spokesman Jon Read said Barnstaple had been on the company’s target town list for some time as it is the “perfect location for a store”.
He said: “We have simply been waiting for the right property to become available.
“We knew we had many Hotter customers in the area due to our home shopping channel and wanted to open a store to provide more options for them and different ways to shop.”
Store manager Kay Manley, from Barnstaple, said: “We are looking forward to giving our customers a warm welcome and level of service which will really make us stand out.”
