Next big retailer coming to town: Designer Shoe Warehouse

DSW will be moving in to the former Linens 'n Things space.

Another big retailer has plans to open a store in Lynnwood. Designer Shoe Warehouse will be taking over the former Linens ‘n Things space next to Old Navy on Alderwood Mall Parkway. The building has been empty since the company went bankrupt in 2008.

“The building permit for DSW was issued on February 4, 2011.  The work is straightforward and should take only a matter of months,” Lynnwood’s Economic Development Director David Kleitsch told us.

According to the company’s website, “DSW is the shoe shopping destination for style-conscious women and men who appreciate value.”

Currently DSW has locations in Northgate, Federal Way, Redmond, Bellevue and Southcenter.

It should be noted that another big shoe store — Famous Footwear — is just a few stores away from the new Lynnwood DSW.

  1. Isn’t there already a shoe store about 1/2 block away?! How asinine! Nowadays, new construction means either a new bank, restaurant, jewelry or shoe store. Can’t anybody come up with something original?
