Meadowhall shopping centre secures five new tenants and announced plans for a raft of store reformatting projects amid a £60 million refurbishment scheme.
The new tenants at the Yorkshire shopping hub include luxury retailer Flannels, which has secured a 10,000 sq ft store set to open its doors this month. Across from Flannels natural health and beauty retailer Neal’s Yard has announced a 700 sq ft store complete with a therapy room for instore treatments.
Luxury Belgian chocolate store Godiva will also open its doors in Meadowmill, signing up for a 1700 sq ft concept store including a café and boutique. Coffee retailer Nespresso will also open a 1200 sq ft space following a successful trial of its kiosk in the centre.
Swiss watch manufacturer and retailer Tag Heuer is also set to open its largest store in the UK after securing a 1820 sq ft space in the centre.
Meanwhile established brands in the centre, including House of Fraser, All Saints, Hollister and Hugo Boss have all planned refurbishments in the coming months.
“Our strategy is to ensure Meadowhall’s offer reflects consumers’ changing modern lifestyles,” Richard Crowther of joint owner British Land said.
“Attracting these premium brands to the line-up achieves this objective and is a great endorsement of the enhanced environment we and our occupiers are creating at the centre.”
The lettings and reformats are planned for completion to coincide with the £60 million refurbishment programme that is set for completion by the end of 2017.
