SKECHERS Footwear opens flagship store in San Francisco
Nov '08
SKECHERS USA Inc announced the opening of a high-profile flagship store in the heart of San Francisco's premier shopping area – just off the Powell and Market streets' cable car stop and bordering Union Square. The three-floor SKECHERS location is also the Company's largest concept store at 7,500 square feet. The store features 800 unique styles and is capable of housing 20,000 units of footwear and apparel.

Located in a historic building on the corner of Powell and O'Farrell streets, SKECHERS' new store design both reflects the Company's image as well as the Art Deco architecture of the building, which was constructed in 1933.

The store features modern curved fixtures, two 12-foot by 4-foot LED screens, seven plasma screens, thermo clear panels on the 16-foot ceiling, and a three-dimensional “super block wall” constructed from Styrofoam and plaster. SKECHERS also restored the original green terra cotta tiles and copper pipes on the upper exterior walls surrounding 18-foot bay windows and the original black granite at the street level.

“Our new Powell Street flagship store has everything we require in a retail location and more,” began Michael Greenberg, SKECHERS president. “It is in one of the premier tourist and shopping locations in San Francisco with tens of millions of visitors annually."

"It is in an unbelievably beautiful building that both reflects the brand's image and furthers its reputation. The consumers that shop for our footwear and apparel in this store will be in for an incredible experience.”

In a highly trafficked area within a block of H&M and Macy's, the SKECHERS store at 200 Powell Street includes one level of men's and women's footwear, and a second level of children's footwear and SKECHERS men's and women's apparel.

Designed as brand-building tools and living catalogs, SKECHERS retail stores are in prime tourist locations worldwide, including flagship stores in New York's Times Square, Los Angeles' Hollywood & Highland and Universal City Walk, Toronto, London, Paris, and Shanghai. SKECHERS currently owns and operates more than 215 retail stores in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia.

SKECHERS USA, Inc., based in Manhattan Beach, California, designs, develops and markets a diverse range of footwear for men, women and children under the SKECHERS name, as well as under several uniquely branded names.

SKECHERS footwear is available in the United States via department and specialty stores, Company-owned SKECHERS retail stores and its e-commerce website, as well as in over 100 countries and territories through the Company's global network of distributors and subsidiaries in Canada, Brazil, and across Europe, as well as through joint ventures in China and Hong Kong.
