A Personal (& special) Thank you…

A week or so ago one of sales staff were returning from their local post office when he bumped into a very content Mum who said she had something for the staff at our Kirkwall Begg Shoes shop. Her 9yr old son has Autism and sensory processing disorder and had made a hand written card thanking our staff for their support in finding him a pair of shoes.

Here is the story from Jacob at Kirkwall Begg Shoes & Bags…

“A few weeks ago Corban and his mother came into the shop to find a suitable pair of shoes. She warned me beforehand that her son had Autism and sensory processing disorder and a serious problem with anybody or anything touching his feet, which was the reason why he wore wellies the entire time. She also mentioned that he hadn’t lasted more than a week or so in a pair of shoes before! I eventually managed to get him to trust me and try on many different pairs and eventually we found a few he actually liked but they chose not to get anything at that time. However it was not till their second visit more recently that his Mum successfully and with much perseverance found a pair of trainers he was keen to wear. Corban’s mother was delighted with the service and gave me a card from their first visit to the shop thanking me for my help and one on their second for all the Beggs staff. – Jacob (Kirkwall Shoe Shop)

From all of us at Head Office, we thank you Corban for sending in your card. We are a family business and love to know when the staff in our shoe shops are going above and beyond in their daily job. We hope you enjoy your shoes & look forward to seeing you again.
