Schuh Kids to open at Bluewater
Leading footwear retailer Schuh is opening a dedicated 1,000 sq ft Schuh Kids store at Bluewater this November.
The new shop will be located immediately adjacent to the existing Schuh store on the upper Thames Walk, bringing an expanded range of children’s footwear to the Kent shopping centre. It will also allow Schuh to increase its adults range in the existing store.
Together with additional storage space that will be shared by both stores, Schuh's total footprint at Bluewater is increasing to 7,300 sq ft.
“The performance of children's shoes at Bluewater has been phenomenal and so we are very pleased to be able to act on this success by opening a standalone schuh kids,” said Phil Whittle, Retail Director at Schuh.
The news follows the recent opening of CK Underwear and Pravins. CK Underwear has taken a 1,100 sq ft store on the upper Rose Gallery, while jewellery brand Pravins launched a 1,000 sq ft boutique.
"We are continually evolving Bluewater's offer with innovative new concepts and store designs to ensure there is always something new for guests to experience. These latest additions are examples of that strategy in action, and complement the extensive work in the last 12 months to create a number of new statement stores, such as Next, the forthcoming H&M, FatFace, Mint Velvet and, most recently, Michael Kors," added Russell Loveland, Portfolio Director at Land Securities, co-owner and asset manager of Bluewater.
