Dr Martens steps into Derby

Footwear retailer Dr Martens has opened its first store in Derby, in the Cathedral Quarter.

The 478 sq ft store at 50 Sadler Gate follows openings on London’s Oxford Street, Cheshire Oaks and Sheffield in 2015, bringing Dr Martens’ UK stores count up to 24.

UK marketing manager Daniel Freeland said: “The brand’s origins lie in workwear and Derby has a rich heritage in manufacture, with it being widely regarded as a birthplace of the industrial revolution. Now thriving with cutting edge industry and global business, we’re excited to make our mark here.”

He added: “Derby is a perfect fit for Dr Martens with its lively alternative music scene and vibrant student population. Sadler Gate is buzzing with bars, shops, tattooists and hair salons – a real lifestyle destination – so we’re looking forward to bringing our offering to the street and embedding ourselves in the local community.”
