Footwear retailer Skechers is set to open its first Chattanooga location next month.

The store will be located in the former Lifeway Christian Store space near the Hamilton Place Mall.

The marketing director for Hamilton Place, Taylor Bostwick, confirms the store will open on August 2.

If you're in need of a job, Skechers has three positions posted on their career website for the Chattanooga location.

They include both part-time and full-time positions.

Skechers are sold in more than 170 countries and nearly 3,200 stores worldwide.

There is a Skechers at the Calhoun Outlet Marketplace in Calhoun, GA and five other locations in Tennessee, including Nashville and Memphis.
