Carlisle's last independent shoe shop to close

Carlisle's last independent shoe shop is preparing to close its doors for the final time.

McGrath Shoes on Lowther Street will cease trading next month after 95 years in business.

Once, it was one of nine independent shoe retailers in the city.

Nowadays every clothing store sells shoes, whereas when I first started, each shop sold their own product.

But everywhere you go you can get shoes, even to the point you can go to a garden centre and buy shoes now.
