Footwear retailer Schuh has taken its first step into out-of-town retailing as it signs up to Teesside Shopping Park in Stockton-on-Tees.

Schuh has taken a 4,950 sq ft store at the British Land-owned retail park.

Schuh managing director Colin Temple said: “We were really impressed by the quality of the retailers and the environment there and are confident it will provide a solid platform to continue to grow our brand from.”

The signing follows the recent lettings to N Brown for the first out-of-town store for its dual fascia Simply Be and Jacamo brands.

British Land was represented by property agent Wilkinson Williams and Jones Lang LaSalle’s shopping centre team.  Eric Young & Co acted for Schuh.
