EUROPE’S BIGGEST SHOE RETAILER ARRIVES IN BARNSLEY

Europe’s biggest shoe retailer, Deichmann, has now opened its doors in Barnsley.

The retail giant’s new 416 metre squared unit is located in The Glass Works following a £390,000 refurbishment. The store will add to Deichmann’s impressive 3,700 strong global portfolio.

The store opening has created 13 permanent jobs in the local area, including supervisor positions, shop floor and cashier roles.

Like its counterparts, the Barnsley store benefits from a simple, customer friendly layout, with all the stock available on the shop floor so that customers can easily locate and try on the style and size of their choice without having to wait for assistance.

Deichmann will be celebrating the opening on Saturday 5th, with great in store offers throughout the day.

Deichmann has an impressive range of women’s shoes, bags and accessories, which have been gaining column inches in publications from Cosmopolitan to Elle.

The company also frequently collaborates with cutting edge fashion designers and A-List stars, the latest SS20 collection being with singer/songwriter Rita Ora. Previous collaborations with British singing sensation, Ellie Goulding, design duo, Nova Chiu, and Hollywood celebrity, Halle Berry have brought exclusive, stylish collections to its customers at accessible prices.

Deichmann also stocks a full range of men’s and children’s shoes, as well as unique and exclusive lines from brands such as adidas, Fila, Nike and Skechers. These come with a price guarantee, ensuring that customers are refunded the difference if they find an identical pair of branded shoes cheaper in any UK high street or online retailer. There is also an extensive ‘comfort’ range for those looking to marry style with snugness.

Callum Christie, Store Manager of Deichmann Barnsley, said:

“We’re really excited to be opening our doors in Barnsley and are thrilled to have been able to help create new local jobs.

“We are also looking forward to getting to know all the local shoppers and becoming a well-loved fixture in The Glassworks.”
