Footwear retailer Clarks is to relocate its Shrewsbury store from the Pride Hill Centre to a new, bigger, home in the town’s Darwin Centre.

The new store is due to open in July/August this year [2021], with its fit-out beginning this week.

The new unit – formerly Laura Ashley – is a larger space and will allow for an even bigger selection of adult and children’s shoes, offering greater choice for customers.

The existing store team will transfer to the new store.

The announcement follows the recent news that The Entertainer is also moving to the Darwin Centre this summer.

Hayley Charczenko, Clarks area manager, said:

“We’re excited to be moving to our new home in the Darwin Centre. We can’t wait to open and serve our customers in a brand new environment.”

Kevin Lockwood, Shrewsbury shopping centres manager, said:

“It’s great news that Clarks is relocating to the Darwin Centre and have committed their future to Shrewsbury.

“I look forward to welcoming them to their new home and wish them every success once the new store opens.”

A number of stores have already relocated from the Pride Hill Centre to the Darwin Centre, as part of plans to develop the Pride Hill Centre and to establish the Darwin Centre as Shrewsbury’s primary shopping centre. This includes several independent retailers who have moved to The Collective independent traders’ gallery, plus Meg Hawkins, Mollie’s sweet shop, and F.Hinds.
