Schuh has now stopped its online operations temporarily alongside its physical stores to ensure the safety of both its customers and staff amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

The footwear retailer will close its official website today until further notice so that its staff that are based in the company’s head office and also staff that work in fulfilment centres are protected from the pandemic.

Schuh faced a difficult decision as they received conflicting advice from the Scottish and UK governments about how best to operate during this time.
