Our Story

Our Story

Landau has been at the forefront of independent retail in the heart of Folkestone's community since we first opened our store in 1982. Our passion and enthusiasm for products has been hand picked from global brands, taking inspiration from our local customers, and our stunning coastal location. As an Independent business we have strived to ensure we listen to our customers and their loyalty has been incredible, for which we are so grateful.

Our Commitment To Sustainability

We are continuing to review, develop & improve our day-to-day practices, focused on how we can move to a more sustainable place to work, with products to match both in store and online.

From shoe recycling programmes, to ethically made products, to organic cottons, or low carbon footprint products such as Nike's Move To Zero programme, we can all start to make a difference.

Community Spirit & Partnerships

Our partnerships with both youth education and creative sectors in Folkestone offer students the chance to work digitally with us, especially through e-commerce as part of their curriculum while studying in The Folkestone College. The students' passion shines through as they get to work with products they love and share ideas and skills with like minded people in our business.

Folkestone's Creative Quarter community of artists and makers have showcased their work in store and online, with customised sneakers, hand crafted prints, and videography projects all filmed just down the road, around the Folkestone Harbour.

An Inspiring Seaside Location

With new initiatives and venues popping up, Folkestone's creative atmosphere has been further enhanced with our very own Banksy installation in the Old High Street, creating a further draw into town, coupled with the Folkestone Triennial visual arts exhibition and brand new World Class F51 Skate Park opening 2021.

Ever evolving, ever learning, we are proud to be at the heart of Folkestone's community.
