Courierpostonline.com is reporting that Skechers will open a warehouse store in the Willow Ridge Plaza on Route 73 in Marlton, NJ.  The store, which is expected to open later this year, will take the space vacated by Famous Footwear.

Skechers is a California-based company with over 2,800 stores worldwide, including 15 in New Jersey, but this will be the first in Burlington County.   A company spokesperson said the Marlton location "will be a warehouse store, which is very similar to an outlet store but can carry more of a variety."

Skechers has a history of using celebrities to promote it's brand.  Footwearnews.com notes that former Skecher shoe brand ambassadors include Demi Lovato, Christina Aguilera, and Meghan Trainor.  Currently, Camila Cabello has her own line of Skechers called D'Lites.

When opened, the Skechers Warehouse Store will join the likes of Old Navy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Five Below, and Ulta in the Willow Ridge Plaza.
