There will be life and business after Brexit!!

July 15, 2016

Well I guess, at Crispins Shoes we were unpleasantly surprised when Britain voted to leave the EU. Amongst other things, there were many questions such as what now? How would Brexit affect our life in the UK and of course how would it effect business and in particular, our sector, ladies plus size shoes?

The immediate aftermath of exiting the EU didn’t look great. For one thing the value of pound dropped to levels not seen since early 80s which meant less purchasing power for importers. Secondly the possibility of tariffs on imports from the European Union would also not be a happy prospect for businesses and especially those that import goods from Europe.
Having said all of the above, we know that the show must go on and we always live in hope for a better future with exciting possibilities. Despite all our reservations, there will be life after Brexit and as far as we're concerned, there will always be extra tall ladies with a great taste for high-end high-quality plus size shoes, and we're going to continue to supply the very best ladies plus size shoes. Also on the up-side, the lower value of sterling has made it less costly for our overseas customers to purchase goods. You could say, if you’re living outside of the UK, your money will stretch further and you’ll get more plus size shoes for your money than ever before!
Another exciting prospect in the long term is that if the value of pound stays relatively low, it could encourage the manufacture of British made goods which may lead to more exports of British goods. So you never know, in time we may even be stocking British made plus size shoes at Crispins Shoes. Now that would be exciting. This will probably not happen in the short-term but then again Rome wasn’t built in a day!
So there you have it. It appears that the initial anxiety and sadness brought about by Brexit is gradually giving way to hope and determination to make business work regardless. So at Crispins Shoes, we’ll continue to do what we do best and that is to bring our customers the very best of European made women’s plus size shoes.
