Skechers set to open another store in Westfield Stratford
Footwear company Skechers is set to open another store in Westfield Stratford this year, close-by to its existing retail outlet in the shopping mall.
The new retail location is located on the ground floor, in between skateboard shoe brand Vans and lingerie label Anne Summers.
Westfield Stratford has an existing Skechers store located on the same floor, two stores to the right of the new location. The footwear chain also has a shop in Westfield London, as well as five more located across London.
Skechers is an American company with headquarters in Manhattan Beach, California. Founded in 1992, it has grown to be the third largest athletic footwear brand in the United States, selling lifestyle and performance footwear for men, women and kids as well apparel and accessories.
The company has a global store portfolio of 4,170 across more than 170 countries. Last December Skechers announced financial results for the third quarter, ending 30 September 2021. The results showed a year-over-year sales increase of 19.2%, reaching a total of $1.55 billion. Sales grew across all segments with increases to domestic wholesale of 10.1%, international wholesale of 10.6%, and Direct-to-Consumer of 44.1%.
No opening date has yet been given for the new store.
