NEW SKECHERS STORE NOW OPEN
Skechers outlet store now open on Level 2! Huge worldwide footwear brand comes to Princes Quay
The wait is over – Princes Quay’s new Skechers store is now open!
A global leisure and footwear leader with stores in more than 170 countries around the world, Skechers has taken over a 3,500 sq ft unit in a prominent position of Level 2 of the shopping centre, next to Beaverbrooks and opposite Monsoon.
The outlet store will offer a varied selection of the company’s athletic, casual and fashionable footwear and clothing, with impressive discounts on high street prices, and is also a member of the Princes Quay Student Saver scheme, offering a 15% store discount to students who register for a free card.
John Magee, Prince Quay’s Centre Manager, said: “Attracting Skechers to Princes Quay is a massive coup for the centre; they’re a huge worldwide brand and we’re delighted to welcome them to Hull.
“This is the first time Skechers have had a standalone store in the city and, given the positive reaction we enjoyed when we first announced news, we’re confident the store will be extremely popular with our visitors.”
Skechers is an American company that originated in California in 1992. It now has over 2,500 stores across the world and is the third biggest athletics footwear brand in the US. Its brand ambassadors include British model Kelly Brook and American boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard.
The company’s varied range includes everything from sandals and sportswear to running shoes and workwear – including footwear for health professionals and work boots.
Mr Magee added: “Welcoming a major brand like Skechers to the scheme demonstrates the positive impact of the £20m investment in the centre. We’re committed to further developing our outlet offering, and the pedestrian link to Hull Venue, which opened in August, has been a real hit with visitors too.”
