Schuh joins The Mall in Blackburn

Footwear retailers Schuh and Shoe Zone have launched new stores in The Mall shopping centre in Blackburn.

Schuh opened its first standalone store in the area on Friday August 23 at 26 Springhill, beside high street retailers Topshop, River Island and New Look, according to Drapers’ sister magazine Retail Week.

Shoe Zone has also signed up to the scheme in the 650,000 sq ft shopping centre, which has been undergoing extensive improvements over recent years. The shopping centre is represented by property consultants Tushingham Moore and Montagu Evans.

Montagu Evans retail partner Martin Gudaitis said: “Since the opening of the Lord’s Square redevelopment in summer 2010 and comprehensive refurbishment of the existing malls, The Mall Blackburn has continued to improve its position within the Northwest’s retail hierarchy.

“Existing tenants are generally trading well, hence the scheme is attracting interest from new retailers to the town.”

Anchor retailer Debenhams has also completed a major extension and refurbishment of its existing Blackburn store.
