Footwear and accessories retailer DSW plans to open 21 new stores across the US from this month to October.
The stores will open at several places, including Salinas in California; Katy and Euless in Texas; Port St. Lucie in Florida; and Owings Mills in Maryland.
DSW store vice-president Valara Gee said: "New store growth is an important and exciting piece of the DSW formula.
"It allows us to bring the brand to more communities and build relationships with new customers.
"More stores also enable us to provide additional customers with immediate access to our full assortment. We look forward to engaging with these new customers and helping them find the perfect shoe at the perfect price."
Each DSW store has around 25,000 pairs of designer and branded shoes, as well as accessories such as bags, scarves, jewellery and socks.
