Nimmo In Devonshire Road Announces It Is Closing
The luxury Italian bags and shoe shop will shut end of March
Nimmo, the Italian leather bag and shoe shop in Devonshire Road, will close at the end of March.
Owner Sheila Nimmo who has been trading in Chiswick for thirteen years said a high increase in rent was behind her decision to shut the store.
Independent traders in Chiswick have repeatedly complained that high rent and rates are putting them under pressure in a challenging economic climate.
Sheila Nimmo said that she intended to sell shoes online in future. She previously owned a similar shop in Fulham and decided to open in W4 because many of her customers came from Chiswick.
"I've enjoyed my time here and made a lot of good friends but I'm telling my customers now that I will take the shoes business online, though not the bags".
There is currently a sale on at the shop.
Nimmo Shoes was founded in 1994 and all their handbags and shoes are manufactured in Italy and are 100% genuine leathers and their loafers are all hand stitched in the traditional Italian manner.
