Footwear giant opens first store in Saudi Arabia


DSW Inc. is making good on its promise to create a foothold in the Persian Gulf.

The footwear giant opened of its first warehouse store in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The new 15,000-sq.-ft. store is located at the Mall of Dhahran.

"This new store design delivers the same capacity on half the space of our North American locations, giving our Saudi guests the same experience they would expect to receive in the USA, while positioning the warehouse as a potential fulfillment center for future digital initiatives,” said Simon Nankervis, chief commercial officer for DSW Inc.

This is company’s second DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse operating outside North America. The footwear giant opened its first location at the Muscat Grand Mall, in Oman, in June.

Both stores are among 40 new locations DSW plans to open across the Middle East with the help of its Dubai-based franchise partner, Apparel Group, over the next five years.
