Footwear shop Shoe Zone will be opening at The Link Retail Park at Westwood this Saturday (November 2).

A full launch day is planned for November 9. The Thanet store will be Shoe Zone’s 42nd ‘big box’ store and creates seven new jobs and a further three internal promotions.

The store is going into unit 3, formerly the site of Mattressman until its closure last year.

The Leicester-headquartered business is planning to open 4 additional out-of-town stores, before the end of 2019, taking the total to 45.

The store will stock brands including Rieker, Skechers, Heavenly Feet and its own brand range.

It will be hosting opening offers on branded stock on the full launch day.

 Hannah Tomlinson Head of Store Marketing at Shoe Zone, said: “We are very excited to be opening our 42nd branded store in Thanet. This is our 23rd big box store opening within the last 12 months, which is a great achievement for Shoe Zone, taking our total number of stores in the UK to 503.

“We hope that our customers like what’s on offer and we look forward to welcoming them into our new store.”
