    Greatest shop in Bournemouth
    My latest visit to this beautiful shop, to replace my favorite ankle boots - result: had to buy an irresistible pair of tall boots as well... I am fussy about my footwear, as if my feet are not comfortable I am miserable. As ever, both pairs are great, look good and really comfortable to wear. Thank you, it is always worth the trip.

    Very happy 😊
    I drove down to Bournemouth for the weekend and just happened to walk past Imeldas. If you love shoes, you will love this shop. So many colours and styles.... very good quality leather shoes. Lady in the shop very knowledgeable about her products..... and went up and down the stairs to get different shoes for me to try. In the end I bought a pair of boots and a pair of shoes. Very happy with my purchases. I will always check in whenever I visit Bournemouth again!!

    Fantastic Service
    At last, true customer service...I visited this shop looking to purchase a handbag for my wife's birthday. Immediately I entered there was a welcoming feeling reinforced by the wonderful service I received in helping me to make my choice of gift. Faced with quite a selection from which to choose, (which was surprising considering the size of the shop), the sales assistant, asked me about colours that my wife wore, her skin tone and height....I hadn't considered any of that before!!. Then with suggestions on possible choices, I selected one, and guess what...my wife said it was perfect (and it's in constant use so I know she truly loves it and not just because I'd bought it). You simply do not get this level of customer service and attention to detail from the bigger stores.

I went to Bounemouth specifically to buy boots at Imelda's on Thursday last to find at 10 am they were closed - no signs of life and no opening hours on the shop doors. 36 mile round trip wasted.

I bought a pair of boots for my wife for Christmas. unfortunately she did not like them. When we went to take them back she could not find anything in the shop that she liked so we asked for a refund and were told, NO. We could only have a credit note!! There are no signs in the shop and to explain this and when I said this to the shop assistant she said its in your receipt, which you get AFTER you buy from them.

As we had this conversation with the assistant a lady next to us in the shop said they are bad here they don't tell you unless you ask.

The boots have never been out of the box and while they don't need to refund our money under the law, a fact the manager seemed very practiced at explaining this seem to be only good customer service.

So if you ever have cause to shop here beware!!!! And don't ever buy a gift in this shop!!!!

Personal services by the owners, nothing is too much trouble, no matter how many times you try different styles and colours. Took my friend who brought shoes and handbags to match.

What can I say that has not already been said about Imeldas Wardrobe, not only do they have a fantastic selection of shoes and handbags, but I have recently experienced their commitment to customer satisfaction. I recently purchased a wonderful pair of navy blue shoes, (you just try and buy navy blue shoes elsewhere!) which unfortunately had a manufacturing fault. When I returned to Imeldas I was prepared for a difficult time as I had worn the shoes, however, Imeldas were absolutely fantastic. They were immediately very apologetic and said they would order a replacement pair from Italy. Not only did I receive the replacement shoes, but also they had repaired the originals for me. What a fantastic example of good old fashion customer relationship! I would highly recommend a visit to Imeldas when you are in Bournemouth

I returned a pair of shoes for the 4th I repeat the 4th time because they don’t refund so you have to buy something else. The problem is they have a limited range and in only a few sizes which restricts your choice even further. The first pair I returned when I got them home I found them pinching on the side when I walked around the house so I took them back. I then purchased another pair again I’ve got them home and didn’t like the feel of them once walking around the house with them so I took those back. Then I purchased a pair of boots which were over £100. I got them home and found the zip had broken I.e. split from the middle so I took them back and the man in the shop said this is most unusual. He managed to zip them back up and said ‘ you shouldn’t be using that zip you should only use the inside zip’ the fact Is both zips were functional so it’s natural to indo both. He insisted that there is nothing wrong with them and therefore I had no choice but to keep them but fortunately whilst I was in the shop the zip actually did come apart again so he had no choice but to give me another pair assuring me they were the same size so I took them and have since worn them and found them to be a size smaller so now rendered useless. I live 170 miles away and only visit the area occasionally so I cannot return them and since I’ve worn them no doubt they will not help me whatsoever based on the experiences I’ve had so far. So I warn anybody who purchases anything, make sure you wear them around the shop even though it is a very very small shop, therefore quite difficult to really experience the feel of them whilst you’re in the shop, you will not get a refund if they are no good and your choice is limited.

Beautiful shoes of great quality. I bought a pair of high heels there which I wore at a wedding for 10+ hours straight on their first use, not a single cut or blister. Absolutely amazing. The shop assistant was very pleasant, I tried on several pairs of shoes and nothing was too much trouble. Will no doubt be returning.

wide variety of shoes, boots and handbags. Staff very friendly, helpful and polite.
They were very obliging by reserving a pair of boots for me, because I have such
small feet. would recommend them to my friends and family. fantastic friendly dog!
