Skechers to open at Queensgate

Footwear brand Skechers is to open a store in Queensgate Shopping Centre in Peterborough.

The franchised store will be designed by an in-house team from Skechers. It will occupy a 242.5 sq m (2,611 sq ft) unit that became available after River Island upsized its store at the centre.

The opening of the Skechers store, in April, will coincide with the commencement of works on the first phase of a £60m extension at Queensgate, which is managed by Lendlease.

“Skechers’ new store will join the growing footwear line-up at Queensgate, located opposite Office and JD Sports, and will join the brand-new gym, Energie Fitness. The next few years will be very exciting for Peterborough and Queensgate, with the new brands and extension significantly broadening Queensgate’s regional appeal,” says Lendlease head of retail Guy Thomas.
