New J.FitzPatrick Footwear US website now Live – Part 1
It has been a long time coming but we are finally ready to launch our US side of J.FitzPatrick Footwear. As a small, privately funded company with only 5 total employees (worldwide), this has to come in stages as we work out all of the logistical challenges of launching a new company in a new market but we don’t want to leave hiccups on your end. So please read more to understand the first stage of our US launch.
We have created a brand new US website, with prices shown in USD, shoes listed in US sizing, a dedicated US stock, and shipping coming directly from our NYC location. And we finally accept American Express (on the US site only). We have cleaned up the look of our site too, not in a huge way but in a way that we felt was a bit easier to navigate, particularly for mobile use.
However, as challenging as it is with real estate in Manhattan (i.e. size of physical space) we have had to launch the US website with minimal accessory products, mainly offering shoe trees, belts, and shoelaces. These are what we feel to be the most pertinent to a rounded shoe sale.
We will soon launch our NYC showroom location with an official announcement and party but we are already accepting appointments and welcoming anyone who would like to stop by.
Please bear with us while we work out the kinks on our US/UK expansion and hope that you enjoy the new site.
