The famous shoe chain, which operated on the high-street for more than 100 years and had 400 shops, launched its online presence at the end of April 2014 and we store and distribute all of their goods from our Rushden fulfilment warehouse, as well as handling customer service queries through the Orbital Response contact centre in Ashford.

Barratts Shoes are expecting sales of over 100,000 orders per year across its footwear, accessories and luggage offering.
Harvey Jacobson, chairman of Barratts Shoes, said: “After much anticipation we are pleased to announce that we are launching our ecommerce operation with the support of Orbital Response. We are looking forward to working with Orbital on this and hope that our customers will enjoy shopping on our new website.”
