Lady McBeth Closing Down


This Abingdon shoe seller was last featured on this blog with a quote from Shakespeare's MacBeth "twere well it were done quickly"...

Here is another...

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted shops
until their closing down..."

I noticed this yesterday - the most comfortable shoes I own , a pair of Kickers, came from Lady McBeth (is this a shoehorn I see before me?)

Does anyone know why they are going - is it personal reasons (retirement?) or is even Lady M not immune to the economic downturn? The doom-mongers will be sure that it is the latter so if it isn't it would be good to know.

My dear wife has bought shoes from Lady M in the past as well as a long shoe horn as a gift for me! She will be missed.

She'll be missed?! You're getting a divorce because of the shoe horn?
