Skechers announced that the world’s third largest athletic lifestyle footwear brand has opened its biggest East Coast retail destination in New Jersey. Centered around The Comfort Technology Company™ and its many innovations, the new nearly 22,000-square-foot superstore at The Mills at Jersey Gardens will showcase the brand’s renowned styles and latest innovations for men, women and children.
“Skechers is a multifaceted lifestyle brand that offers footwear of every kind, from sandals and boots to occupational shoes, running, walking, golf and now pickleball shoes, and more,” said Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “To help us meet consumers’ growing demand for our product, Simon Property Group found the ideal size and location for our new home—a nearly 22,000-square-foot superstore significantly larger than our previous 2,900-square-foot location at The Mills at Jersey Gardens, and one that allows us to showcase our apparel in a dedicated 4,000-square-foot space. A complete fashion, lifestyle and performance destination that enables regional consumers, locals and tourists to explore our entire comfort offering.”
Located on the second floor of The Mills at Jersey Gardens, the new store features dedicated Skechers Performance and Skechers Work shop-in-shop areas, a 4,000-square-foot dedicated Skechers apparel shop, as well as a vast offering of casual footwear and athletic styles. Designed as an easy-to-shop circulation path, the store is an interactive gallery of the Skechers experience, with captivating digital displays and fabric lightboxes presenting the brand’s marketing. Environmental features include LED lighting, concrete and recycled vinyl flooring and energy-conscious ceiling fans as well as recycled rubber seating throughout the store.
