Shoe retailer Skechers will open a store in Omaha later this year.

The Skechers factory store will be next door to Home Goods at 129th Street and West Center Road. It's expected to open in mid-November, in time for the holiday shopping season, a spokeswoman said. Construction will begin in October.

Skechers has several licensed retailers in Omaha but is opening stand-alone stores in select key markets.

“We view Skechers stores as marketing vehicles and living catalogs,” said Skechers USA vice president of corporate communications Jennifer Clay, adding that stand-alone stores allow the company to gain insight on what items are working in specific markets.

About 20 people will be hired to staff the store.

A Skechers factory store is also planned for the Nebraska Crossing Outlets mall in Gretna, which is slated to open Nov. 15.
