An independent children’s shoe shop has relocated to King’s Lynn.

Formerly located in Downham Market, Smith’s Children’s Shoes has now moved to 11 Tower Street in Lynn.

After 16 years at its previous premises, owner Aziz Bouilouta said he wanted his business to grow.

“I brought it to King’s Lynn as I wanted to extend the business and to try to have more brands.

“King’s Lynn is a big town so we moved here to expand.”

The shop specialises in children’s footwear and offers brands which include Start Rite, Geox, Sketchers, Hush Puppies and Ricosta.

Mr Bouilouta said his aim would be to provide a different service to a shoe shop which was part of a nationwide chain with different options to choose from.

Smith’s Footwear relocated on December 12 and will be open Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm.
