Opening date set for Skechers in Lincoln

The brand took out a 10-year lease

A leading footwear brand is set to open at Lincoln’s Waterside Shopping Centre next month.

Skechers, endorsed by Kelly Brook, Camila Cabello and Colin Montgomerie, will open its 58th store at the unit opposite Goldsmiths and next to Three on Friday, December 7.

As previously reported, contracts were signed in May as the brand took out a 10-year lease on the 1,500 square feet unit.

It will create 12 new jobs in the city.

Alongside other offers on the opening weekend there will be a Wheel of Fortune game, where people can spin to win things and everyone will get a prize.

Simon Hussey from Skechers Head Office previously said: “Lincoln is a growing and rapidly changing city, and we’re really looking forward to opening there.

“The Waterside is a fantastic shopping centre and popular with people of all ages, who, at the moment have to travel for about an hour to visit one of our stores. We’re keen to change that.”

General Manager at Waterside Dean Cross added: “A lot of people have put in a great deal of time and effort to make this happen, and it shows once again that Lincoln, and the centre, in particular, are very attractive propositions to national and international retail brands. Skechers is a great addition to our retail mix!”
