At the celebration of the seventieth anniversary of the store, said Lucien, and Christiane that she had for years wanted to continue with the shop. Nevertheless, it is now decided to sell out and in the autumn the final closing. “We have good around us looked, and begin to think,” says Christiane De Neve. “My husband and I are still healthy and happy together, so we should be there now actually enjoy. The shop is 72 years old, and we have 44 years in the shop stood. I think it's been lovely. I got my job as a sales clerk is always pleased to do. But if we still want to enjoy life, then we must do that now. I have 44 years for my clients lived, with much love and dedication. We have to thank our customers for so many faithful years. The store was founded by the parents of Lucien. It is good to this story after 72 years in the beauty and gratitude to a close.”
We always have for the store and our customers lived. But, if we live want to enjoy, we should do that now!”Operators Shoe Verschuere
During the sale, there are things to do. All shoes are now going out the door, with discounts of thirty to fifty percent. “In the autumn should be as good as all the way and then close the door,” says Christiane. “That last day, it will certainly with a little tear. But from then on it is also time for other things. We will definitely be cycling a lot, because I now know that I contact the people go missing. We are going to be a lot of sea to go hiking, more fun things to do together with their grandchildren, and perhaps I will also have my sewing machine back from the attic. Simply: enjoy life.”In 1972 moved
Lucien and Christiane took over the business of Maurice Verschuere and Zoë Heyse, the parents of Lucien. In that 72 years, but two generations behind the counter stood. ”The first store in the Veldstraat in Knesselare, right in front of the former Withof,” says Lucien the family story. “Pa worked as a shoemaker for the window and as he was one day noticed by the man of wholesale Boes from Eeklo. He proposed not only for shoes, but now shoes to sell. In a few days time that was arranged. Father flew with his studio back in the house, and in front was a shop for mother. A lot more than what trestles with planks, was that not in the beginning. In 1972, moved the store from the Veldstraat to the Urselseweg. First We together with our parents worked, and in 1985, we have the case taken over. It's been lovely,” says Lucien.
