Statement from Shoebox Books

Shoebox Books has today terminated the business’s Parramatta Franchise. The franchisee, John Fitzgerald, was arrested this morning by police.

The franchisee must not act in a manner which prejudices the goodwill or reputation of the franchisor. Shoebox has terminated the franchise for the Parramatta area forthwith.

We want to reassure our customers and franchisees that we take this matter extremely seriously.

Shoebox is monitoring this matter closely and are in the process of contacting franchisees and customers to answer any questions.
