Friars Walk to welcome Skechers

Friars Walk, the Newport retail and leisure destination, has announced that footwear brand Skechers is to open a new store at the £117 million scheme.

Due to launch in March, the store will span 2,070 square feet and will sit alongside Pandora and Body Shop.

Opened by Queensberry Real Estate less than five months ago, Friars Walk has also seen recent openings by Holland and Barratt, Vodafone, Wagamama and Zizzi.

In addition, ten pin bowling operator Superbowl UK will open a 18,000 square foot unit on 18 March

The new openings follow the announcement last month that New Look Men will join the Friars Walk line-up. The fashion retailer has signed for a 1,808 square foot store which will be the first for the menswear concept in Wales and only the sixth to open nationally.

Stuart Harris, director and co-founder of Queensberry Real Estate, said: "Since Friars Walk opened both footfall and trade has been better than expected, these new openings will complement and strengthen our retail and leisure offer further joining the likes of Debenhams, H&M, Top Shop, Cineworld, Le Bistro Pierre, Loungers, and TGI Fridays. We have been really pleased at how the retail and leisure offer has worked together creating a really strong all day and evening offer for our customers."
