Quiet Shopping Hours

A Private Shopping Experience for kids with Special-Needs at The Elly Store

Together with The Elly Store re-branding and launch of our new website, we have decided to offer “Quiet Hour Shopping” to our little community of shoppers. “Quiet Hour Shopping” means we will open the store for an extra hour and a half on two days of each month to privately serve our little customers with special needs; special hours where the store is open only to disabled/autistic/special needs children.

All kids have their own quirks. Especially so for a special-needs child. Some ordinary shopping experiences such as heavy crowd, loud music, overly bright lights and too much choice, might be really distracting or annoying for both parent and child.

And that’s not including things like other people staring and being nosy, or staff not having the time to serve you whilst you’re trying to shop for your child.

In order for you to have a positive shopping experience, Quiet Hour Shopping would mean your child would have:

  • Privacy
  • Individual, undistracted service
  • Ambience-creation

Welcome to The Elly Store

What we can do during your shopping experience is give you one-on-one service and our general advice on what we know works for certain foot shapes or functions. As for clothes shopping, take the time to compare sizing whilst we amuse or watch over your child. We’ll be like your extra hands and eyes.

Our store does not carry specialized products for disabilities. The shoe brands we carry include:

  • Pediped
  • Livie and Luca
  • Bobux
  • Old Soles
  • Duvic
  • Converse

The variety we have in store is curated carefully for a range of function, design and most importantly comfort. We always strive to choose shoes that are quality-centric and sensitive to little feet.

A wide range of shoes

We’d like to stress that we are no medical experts – just patient, cheery people who would like to offer you our undivided time and attention during that period, which is why we are going to have special private opening hours by appointment only on:

  • Tuesday, 16th May 2017 (7:00pm – 8:30pm)
  • Saturday, 20th May 2017 (8:30am – 10:00am)

Creating a calm environment

Please send us an email to book your slot so we can ensure we have sufficient team members working that day. We will try to tailor your experience if you’d share with us your concerns (e.g. if you only want your child to get a blue sandal, we’ll pull out all the styles in his size).

Slots are on a first-come-first-serve basis for now, as we try to see how we can accommodate everyone’s requests in the future.

Every child is special, and we can’t wait to meet yours!

Our 5th Birthday Shoe Sale!

happy-5-birthday

We turn 5 on March 4, 2017. Just like that.

I was just reading through one of my old blog posts (“A lookback on our first year“) and feeling nostalgic. Since our move to the bigger store in November 2015, we’ve been indulgent in celebrating two birthdays a year – in March when we first moved into #02-29 and in November when we shifted to our current double unit!

In the second quarter of this year, we will be unveiling a new website, new packaging and style – a fresh new look for this 5th birthday! We’re really excited about that!  But just as we’re trying to work on these behind the scenes, we’re keeping up with activities going on in-store as well.  We have to make space in our store and warehouse for new Spring/Summer ’17 arrivals, particularly for the many shoe brands we carry!

So, for our 5th birthday, we’ll be having a shoe sale at our Cluny Court store for six of the brands we carry.  Enjoy 30% off past collections from sizes EU 19 to Eu 36 (yes, even your tweens will be able to find shoes to take on their March school holidays)!

1. Old Soles

Time to stock up on your favourite styles such as Sienna sandals (in white, silver, navy, blossom)!

10394124_10152567801132133_4298564677055894732_n

If you’re a fan of the Cruise and Brule ballet flats, you’ll be pleased to know the classic colours such as silver, gold and pearl will be on sale! We think these flats make great dress-up shoes!

As these brands’ past collections are at the end of their season, not all sizes will be available so we do advise you to come early to grab the sizes you’re looking for. Our full range will be launched on Friday and we will not be topping up any styles during the weekend.

Pom d’Api – More than a century of tradition

We are so proud that this year, Pom d’Api has joined our shoe collection, making it a total of 10 international shoe brands.

Pom d'Api - SS16 - HD 09

If you’re familiar with European brands, Pom d’Api would need no introduction.

Pom d’Api continues to thrive in the shoemaker and retail world as it maintains its consistency in crafting stylish quality shoes for children. The story begins in 1870 with Jean-Baptiste Rautureau, a shoemaker in a little village named « la Gaubretière » in Vendee, France. His legacy continues on and 100 years later, with the wealth of knowledge in shoe-making passed on from generations to generations, his great grandsons Yvon and Guy Rautureau launched Pom d’Api.

The birth of Pom d’Api was inspired by the deep passion of generations spent caring about the importance of using noble quality materials to tailor to the precise fitting of each shoe. Bursting with innovation and creativity, every shoe crafted at Pom d’Api was an opportunity for the brothers to provide comfort for the feet of children with style.

At Elly, we understand the importance of comfort for our children and love that there is such a rich heritage in shoe making behind the brand of Pom d’Api. Of course, we also love how classic yet stylish these sandals are for your children!

Pom d’Api is only available at the Elly store at #02-31/33 Cluny Court.
