A West Coast shoe company is lacing up a Short Pump location.
Skechers is opening a store in the Wegmans- and Cabela’s-anchored West Broad Marketplace at 12282 W. Broad St.
The Southern California-based brand is leasing 7,500 square feet in the development.
Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer’s Connie Jordan Nielsen and Alicia Brown handled the lease.
It’ll be the second Skechers store to open in the Richmond region, joining an outlet store near Chesterfield Towne Center at 11312 Midlothian Turnpike.
A Skechers spokeswoman said the Short Pump store is likely to open this fall, but did not comment on whether the new location will affect the Chesterfield outpost.
Skechers will join A.C. Moore, Row House and The Good Feet Store in an L-shaped building in the 60-acre development. Other newly announced retail tenants Duluth Trading Co. and Burlington.
H&R Retail’s Bryan Davis and Ray Schupp represented the landlord in the Skechers deal.
Skechers was founded in 1992, went public in 1999 and now has over 3,100 stores globally. It makes shoes and apparel for women, men and children, and in recent years has been known for its commercials with celebrity endorsements from the likes of Sugar Ray Leonard, Ringo Starr and Joe Montana. The company brought in $1.2 billion in revenue and a profit of $5.2 million in the second quarter, according to SEC filings.
