The Mall welcomes three new stores

Posted on Wednesday 29th August 2012 at 2:29 pm by SH (Editor)

The Mall at Cribbs Causeway, Bristol.

With over 130 designer and high street brands, the latest stores due to open at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway are set to give shoppers even more choice with a wide range of footwear brands.

On Friday 24th August, fashion favourite Republic opened the brand’s first new concept store in the UK. The store offers an extensive fashion range and a unique shopping experience, featuring a large shoe section with a variety of footwear brands such as Miss KG, Miso and Frank Wright.

As the shopping centre prepares for the return of Bristol Fashion Week, September also sees the opening of two footwear brands: Crocs and schuh.

The new schuh store will open mid-September bringing around 40 jobs to the local area along with footwear favourites such as Converse, Vans, and TOMS to name but a few. With temptation in every corner of the store it will be difficult to leave schuh without buying those must have shoes.

Schuh Managing Director Colin Temple said:

“Opening a new store always causes a certain amount of anticipation. However, as we have a proven track record in the Bristol area, we are excited to see the reaction to schuh at Cribbs Causeway.”
