IT'S the end of an era for Lismore's shoe-lovers.

After more than half a century in business, Boutique Shoes (formerly Bondfields Shoes) is closing with a 40 per cent off sale.

It's also a sad day for the Lismore CBD, which was revealed in December 2018 to have 45 vacant shopfronts.

At the time Council said the CBDs vacancy rate was 8.57 per cent.
