The Walking Company, a national retailer of brands such as Ugg, Ecco and MBT, is expected to open at Village Pointe shopping center this week.
The store will be the company's first in Nebraska and is one of three nationwide opening this month, said Steve Dawson, director of retail marketing for the California- based chain.
The Walking Company has stores in 40 states, but until now, the closest locations for Midlands shoppers were in the Minneapolis, Kansas City and Denver areas.
“Every Ugg available, we have access to it,” said Dawson, referring to the popular Australian line of boots and shoes.
The Walking Company will open next to Talbots and Garbo's Salon and Spa, said Kim Jones, marketing director for Village Pointe at 168th Street and West Dodge Road. V Nails salon is expected to open in January just north of Ann Taylor, Jones said.
