St David's adds three new fashion and lifestyle brands
The St David’s mall in Cardiff continues to maintain its retail pulling power. Property giant Landsec, which is part of The St David’s Partnership, has announced the addition of three new fashion and lifestyle stores — Phase Eight, Hobbs, and Rituals.
Totalling over 7,000 sq ft, the new brands “reflect Landsec’s strategy of providing a unique choice and experience for guests across its portfolio”.
Phase Eight’s 2,135 sq ft store is joined by a 3,024 sq ft unit for sister brand, Hobbs, on the Lower Grand Arcade. Rituals completes the trio with the brand making its Welsh debut with a 1,875 sq ft boutique.
Caraline Money, retail director for TFG London, which owns Phase Eight and Hobbs (as well as Whistles), said: “We were drawn to St David’s because of its high footfall and strong catchment, as well as its variety of choice and complementary operators. We are in a great location, surrounded by top-quality brands, and are looking forward to welcoming guests in the run-up to the festive season.
Commenting on behalf of the St David’s partnership, Russell Loveland, Senior Channel Director for Landsec, added: “St David’s has proven its resilience over the course of the last 18 months. The opening of these well-known premium brands is part of our ongoing commitment to provide guests with a varied offering, and working closely with brands to create flagship stores and experiences throughout our portfolio.”
The latest openings also form part of the 68,000 sq ft of new lettings announced at St David’s in 2021, including national debuts for Zara, Breitling and Morphe.
