Deichmann to join the line-up at Solihull’s Touchwood
German footwear retailer Deichmann is to join the line-up at the Touchwood shopping centre in Solihull as it continues to expand across the UK.
The 5,200 square foot store will be situated opposite EE and Schuh on the centre’s Crescent Arcade and will launch in late spring when shops re-open after lockdown.
Andy Underwood, director for Deichmann, said: “We’re delighted to have exchanged on Touchwood. Solihull is a great location, and we look forward to welcoming customers into our new store later this year. Our fantastic value-for-money footwear and accessories offer something for all the family. We’re happy we can do our part to support British high streets and shopping centres in the current climate.”
Founded in 1913, Deichmann has a presence in 30 countries with over 4,000 stores, and has to date sold more than 180 million shoes from brands such as Adidas, Nike, Skechers, and Hush Puppies.
Guy Thomas, head of retail at Lendlease, said: “Signing Deichmann is hopefully the first of more positive news as we move through 2021; securing them in this market is testament to what Touchwood has to offer. It has been a challenging 12 months, but deals have continued within the centre apace as we look to ensure Touchwood maintains its appeal when retail starts to re-open, and customers return in due course.”
