The first Clarks shoe factory was located in the centre of town, across from the “First and Last” pub close to the Exmouth Post Office. This opened in January 1961. (Thanks to Art Hine for this information).
The next factory was on the site of the Salterton Road Tesco Store.
The final factory was built in 1990 on the Liverton Business Park (Unit 6) and at its peak the 17,500 sq ft building employed upwards of 200 people. It closed around April 1999 and the building was taken over by the Seattle-based company Medical Equipment Incorporated followed by Homemaker (2006 – 30/06/2010), and Mooreways (28/12/2011 – 2013). The building currently houses a branch of the retail chain Home Bargains.
