A shopping centre in Ilford is set to welcome back a major footwear store after it closed for a re-fitting. 

Deichmann will re-open its doors to customers at the Ilford Exchange on January 29 following the £185,000 investment. 

The store will celebrate with customers on February 3, offering in-store deals, giveaways and family activities to commemorate the change.

Shoppers will be offered a number of deals and the first 25 customers will get to pick free shoes up to £25. 

There will be free, limited edition bags for the first 500 customers and a spin the wheel game. 

The re-opening has created one new job at the 500 sqm store on the shopping centre's middle level.
