Schuh steps up expansion in London with three new stores
Footwear retailer Schuh has announced plans to launch three new London stores.
The retailer will open a 3,000 sq ft shop in Oxford Street in October opposite the new Park House development. This will be followed in November by the launch of a 1,600 sq ft shop in Canary Wharf.
The openings are part of the Schuh’s wider growth plans in which the retailer will open a total of 18 new shops across the UK by the end of the year.
A third London store will make its debut in 2016 in the second phase of the Oriana development at the east end of Oxford Street.
Phil Whittle, Schuh's head of store operations, said: "As a retailer who started life in Scotland 32 years ago, these three London signings form part of our wider five-year strategy to increase our southern footprint and gain market share in the capital.
"We already have one very successful store on Oxford Street, where we have traded since 2004, and are delighted that these three new stores will give the London shopper even more exposure to Schuh and more choice about where to buy their shoes."
Founded in Edinburgh in 1981, Schuh currently operates more than 90 stores in the UK and Ireland.
