Lace-up your sneakers -- a new business will be very quickly filling the recently vacated Pier 1 Imports store in Mays Landing.

It appears that Skechers will be moving into the store formerly occupied by Pier 1 at the Festival at Hamilton shopping center on the Black Horse Pike in Mays Landing.

While no official announcement has been made, Skechers has posted job openings for a Mays Landing store at 3984 East Black Horse Pike, which is the address of the former Pier 1 outlet.

According to their website, Skechers is known for "its diverse footwear offering" and, "the Company’s head-to-toe collections for men, women and kids include a growing range of apparel and accessories." They currently have a store at Tanger Outlets in Atlantic City.

Pier 1 quickly closed this past summer and as soon as that store was empty, construction crews moved in and worked their magic.
