Lendlease and Invesco Real Estate sign Skechers at Queensgate in Peterborough.
Located on the Upper Mall in the former River Island unit, the 2,611-sq ft store joins Skechers’ worldwide portfolio of franchised retailers and is due to open at the end of April.
This news coincides with the commencement of phase one works for the £60m extension of Queensgate. The extension, totalling 77,000sq ft, will be anchored by a 10-screen Empire cinema and will open in Autumn 2021
Guy Thomas, head of retail at Lendlease, said: “Skechers’ new store will join the growing footwear line-up at Queensgate, located opposite Office and JD Sports, and will join the brand-new gym, Energie Fitness. The next few years will be very exciting for Peterborough and Queensgate, with the new brands and extension significantly broadening Queensgate’s regional appeal.”
