Skechers signs up for new stores in Aberdeen and Southampton
American trainer brand Skechers is expanding its presence in the UK with the opening of two new stores.
The Californian company has agreed a deal with shopping centre owner Hammerson to open its first standalone store in Aberdeen at Union Square and in Southampton at Westquay.
The new 2,260 sq ft store at Union Square will be located on the ground floor of the mall, where it will trade alongside other fashion brands including Zara, River Island and Superdry.
Meanwhile, the Westquay store will occupy 3,800 sq ft of space on level three, joining River Island, Office and Superdry. Skechers will be the tenth brand to open at Westquay this year, following the arrival of Hugo Boss, Lovisa, Joules and Smiggle amongst others.
Hammerson said Skechers will benefit from an ever-growing demand for athleisure and performance products at its shopping centres, with the category consistently outperforming across its portfolio.
Iain Mitchell, Commercial Director at Hammerson, commented, “Skechers is a great addition to the retail mix at Union Square and Westquay. Both centres are the leading retail and leisure destinations in their respective catchments, and as such, are the perfect choice for international brands such as Skechers looking to gain a foothold in the regions.”
