Far off the beaten track but by no means forgotten North End offers a different experience for getting your retail fix. There are quite a few businesses that have been there for generations and a decent amount of independent shops offering a good range of products and service.
One such business is Christopher Shoes – Who first opened a shop at Cosham in 1910, three generations ago. In 1977 they opened a second shop at 122 Kingston Road, North End where they still remain. I used to buy my Dr Marten’s there about 15 years ago and they still offer a good range at great prices. This remains a family run business.
My Mum always took us to Christophers in Cosham to buy our school shoes, lovely little shop and friendly staff. I will certainly be checking out the NorthEnd branch and those DM’s!
Graeat shoe shop, got some good retro shoes here
I’m sure there used to be a Christophers shoe shop in Paulsgrove too, long time ago now but on the corner where the chemist is now.
