Our Story


We are a modern family footwear business based in the heart of Mid Ulster, in Northern Ireland. The business was founded in 1884 by my great grandfather Stewart McConnell.

We are proud to continue a long tradition of providing outstanding customer service in our three shops which are located in Cookstown, Dungannon and Magherafelt. We are delighted to be ecommerce award winners, achieving excellence in digital industry standards and providing an exceptional customer experience.

Our knowledgeable buying teams assess, try on and select shoes from hundreds of top brands to create a fantastic range of footwear. You can shop from our curated range, confident that we have handpicked styles with quality, comfort and value for money at the forefront.

We are also specialists in children’s footwear. Our skilled fitters are professionally trained by Clarks and are happy to answer your queries and provide expert advice on the best styles and width fittings for your child.

At the heart of our business ethos is a belief in providing great customer service and nurturing long standing customer relationships. Our aim is to build on our success by applying the same formula to our online store.
