Footwear retailer entering West Michigan market
An iconic footwear brand is opening its first store in West Michigan.
Costa Mesa, California-based Vans, famous for its classic checkerboard skater shoes, is scheduled to open at Woodland Mall in Grand Rapids, at 3195 28th St. SE, in late March.
The new store will occupy 2,600 square feet, which was formerly used by Apple, which moved to a larger space in April.
The build out of the space for Vans began earlier this month.
Vans also sells clothing and accessories, including backpacks, sunglasses and hats.
“Vans is such a staple in so many wardrobe and shoe collections,” said Lyndsey Hicks, marketing director, Woodland Mall. “We are thrilled to begin a partnership with the company to give this iconic brand a permanent home in West Michigan.”
Several retailers in the region also carry Vans products.
