Eight more big brand retailers have joined the line-up at the new Liverpool Shopping Park, totalling more than 44,000 sq ft of new lettings.
High-street brands Superdrug, Regatta, The Works and Foot Asylum/Drome have recently opened their doors and will be joined by discount household retailer Wilko, fashion retailer Next, shoe retailer Clarks and bakery chain Gregg’s, in early 2018.
All of the new retailers will take space in the Western Quarter – the distinct horseshoe of 17 retail units which front on to Edge Lane. Greggs will take a unit close to the park’s main entrance, near to Chiquito and Subway.
The raft of new tenants follows the opening of the park on October 20th and now sees the first phase 85% let. One of the park’s flagship retailers, M&S Food Hall, opened last week to join H&M, Outfit, Smyths Toys, Boots and River Island amongst others. Three more lettings will be announced in the new year.
James Maule-Ffinch, senior asset manager for The Derwent Group said: “The opening of Liverpool Shopping Park has really strengthened the city’s out of town retail market and these new lettings are testament to the appetite amongst retailers to join the scheme.
“Although some of these lettings won’t turn into store openings until the first part of 2018, they keep positive momentum going on site and give customers plenty of new reasons to keep coming back. We’re confident the final three units in phase one will be let shortly.”
