Rockport will stop selling shoes for January 31, a day after the government imposed a ban on all footwear imports for the festive season.
The decision comes a day before the start of the new year, with most shops and retailers closing their doors on January 21, as they have been instructed to do by the government.
“We would like to reiterate our heartfelt apologies to our customers and the wider community for this unfortunate situation,” the company said in a statement.
“Rockport is committed to ensuring that our loyal customers have access to our footwear in all its glory.”
Rockport said the shoes it stocks would be offered through the online store at a discounted price of Rs 50.99, which was initially priced at Rs 1,099.
The company had previously started stocking its footwear online from January 10, after it had a shortage of stock.
It also offered shoes for sale in its store online on Monday, and in shops and online at a discount of Rs 1.50.
While the shoes were available for sale through the store online, the shoes would not be available for purchase in retail stores.
Rockport was the first brand to launch online shopping at the end of 2016.
RockPort said the ban on footwear imports will also have a direct impact on its footwear business.
“We are very disappointed to announce the closure of our stores, and we have decided to take this action at this time,” the statement said.
