Frenchgate Shopping Centre is set to welcome international discount designer store T.K. Maxx with a new 22,800 sq ft store opening in early summer.
T.K. Maxx delivers an ever-changing selection of designer clothing, footwear and homeware at prices of up to 60% less than the RRP. The brand opened their first European store in Bristol in 1994 and now has over 350 stores across the UK and Ireland.
Paddy Mellon, Frenchgate Shopping Centre general manager, said: “It is fantastic news that we have secured the opening of T.K. Maxx at Frenchgate.
“The addition of T.K. Maxx will further strengthen our fashion and home offer to our loyal shoppers, who I am sure are as excited as we are about the arrival of T.K. Maxx.
“As a centre we are constantly evolving and developing and we have generated interest from numerous leading brands along with traders continuing to report strong sales figures. In addition, Yours clothing will also be undertaking a complete store refit.”
This news follows the recent signing for New Look Men, who recently launched a 3,500 sq ft store. In the past 12 months, Frenchgate has seen 20 new store openings and refits including Topshop and JD Sports, who upsized to an 8,500 sq ft store taking almost three times its original unit. This is in addition to the new H&M fit out taking place this year.
This all comes as part of an approximately £7 million redevelopment within the centre, constituting over 100,000 sq ft and approximately £4million of retailer investment in store fit outs.
