New tenant confirmed for vacant Jones the Bootmaker unit in Cheltenham
A new business will move into the empty boardwalk unit last used by Jones the Bootmaker. The large store in a prominent and prestigious location has been empty since the shoe store closed in 2017.
Visible through the windows are signs of life – tools and props, and just in time for Raceweek, a large wooden rocking horse. The unit will be taken by the Cheltenham Tweed Company, which is currently in the old TM Lewin unit about 20 yards away.
But the company won’t be in its new home in time for the Cheltenham Festival. Cheltenham Tweed Company boss Keith Graham said: ‘We won’t be moving in until April.

“We will be moving from the Lewin unit down the road. We have passed it now. We want to be able to offer a wider range of clothing to our customers.
The company took over the unit at the Boot’s Corner end of the Promenade after TM Lewin left it in 2020. All of the retailer’s stores were closed and the business only went live online .
