US-based branded shoes and accessories retailer Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) has announced the opening of its newest international store.

The new warehouse, located at the Dalma Mall in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), will be the third DSW outside North America and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

DSW chief commercial officer Simon Nankervis said: “We are excited to bring DSW’s broad and exciting footwear assortment to the United Arab Emirates and especially to a city as diverse and energetic as Abu Dhabi.

“Using our new store design, our new Dalma Mall location will deliver our DSW experience within an 8,000ft² location, while maintaining the assortment and variety DSW is known for.”

The other two stores in the GCC region are located at the Muscat Grand Mall in Oman, and at the Mall of Dhahran in Saudi Arabia.

“Our new Dalma Mall location will deliver our DSW experience within an 8,000 square feet location, while maintaining the assortment and variety DSW is known for.”

DSW opened the GCC stores through its regional franchise partner, Apparel Group.

The new store in UAE will offer a wide selection of shoes, including sandals and casual footwear, as well as accessories for the entire family.

Top designer brands, including Nike, Adidas, Aldo, Birkenstock, TOMS and Franco Sarto are among the assortment of brands offered at DSW.

Last year, the retailer disclosed plans to open 40 new stores in the GCC region over the next five years through Apparel Group.

Founded in Columbus, Ohio, DSW operates more than 1,000 owned, leased and partnered locations in North America.
