With news of so many store closures, it’s encouraging to hear of a major opening with US shoe and lifestyle brand Skechers having opened a flagship store on a key Paris shopping street, Rue de Rivoli.
The footwear brand has announced the opening of its new global HQ in Broomfield, CO, a move that will allow the company to employ more full-time staff in an environment "meant to put employees' needs front and center."
Wednesday was another day full of announcements from U.S. retailers looking to do their part to combat the spread of Covid-19 by implementing store closures. J.C. Penney, Skechers and J.Jill were among the latest batch.
