Popular shoe retailer Zomp will be closing its doors in the coming weeks after almost 50 years of business

Zomp was founded in Perth in 1972 and has attracted a loyal following for its mix of local and international shoe brands for women

The retailer currently operates four stores, one in Melbourne, one in Sydney and two in Perth

Zomp previously operated a store on Chapel Street in Melbourne, but closed the store in April 2019 due to the decline in pedestrian traffic in the area

The retailer announced Tuesday morning that the remaining Zomp stores will close “in the coming weeks” as it initiated a 40% discount on all sales through its website

When asked why the store is closing, a spokesman for the retailer said SmartCompany 2020 was “a tough year in an already difficult retail climate”

In a statement made available to SmartCompany and also shared on Facebook, Zomp said, “It’s time to say goodbye”

“Whether you joined Zomp decades ago at Trinity Arcade or recently fell in love, we’re so grateful for your continued support

“We would also like to thank our Zomp team in the past and present. We are overjoyed to have such a loyal and committed team until the end”
