A new shoe shop is to open in the intu Chapelfield shopping centre in Norwich in part of the former Clas Ohlson unit.

American footwear company Skechers is to open their first store in the city in the shop opposite the BB'S Coffee and Muffins stand.

A spokesperson for the shopping centre said that the shop is due to open in the summer.

It comes after the Swedish hardware retailer Clas Ohlson closed its doors last year as the chain focused on developing more smaller stores in London.

The spokesperson added that there had been a lot of interest in the rest of the vacant retail unit.
