A high street retailer is putting its best foot forward after stepping into a shopping outlet.

Footwear store Brantano has its feet firmly on the ground as it opens its doors at the Royal Quays Outlet Centre in North Shields.

Known as footwear specialists for the family, its new team is trained directly by Start Rite and Hush Puppies.

Brantano regional manager for Scotland and the north, Annie Cunningham, said: “It’s great to see yet another one of our fantastic new concessions open to the public and with such a wide range of excellent quality brands available I’m sure it will be a big hit with Royal Quays’ customers.

“With a new season selection of wide fitting shoes, there is something for everyone.”

Royal Quays centre manager, Judith Ramshaw, said: “We warmly welcome Brantano to the centre and look forward to assisting the team to settle in. We are continuing to attract quality brands as we look to offer our loyal customers both quality and diversity.”
