APP is reporting that footwear giant Skechers is getting ready to open in the building that previously housed Marburn Curtains, right next to Target.

This is a pretty big space at almost 7,500 square-feet.

This will be the first standalone Skechers in the area. Other stores can be found in the Jersey Shore and Jackson Premium Outlets and Ocean County Mall.

Skechers is aiming for an early April grand opening.
