Merry Hill to welcome KENJI and Rituals

25th September 2023 | Jack Oliver

Sovereign Centros’ Merry Hill shopping destination in Dudley is set to welcome KENJI and Rituals later this year, with the retailers taking over 6,850 sq ft of combined space.

KENJI’s Merry Hill store will become its 10th in the UK, with the brand opening adjacent to Schuh on the Lower Mall nearby to the recently opened Nike Unite and Schuh Kids. The 4,833 sq ft store will stock a range of Asian-inspired products such as homeware, stationery, gifts, and its signature plushies.

Dutch retailer Rituals will open in the 2,022 sq ft space formerly occupied by Phase Eight on the Upper Mall. The store will offer various health and wellbeing products, such as home items, gift sets, and bath and body products.

Alistair Winning, asset manager at Sovereign Centros, said: “Having brands like KENJI and Rituals joining the retail line-up here at Merry Hill adds to the ever-increasing range of retailers, products, and experiences. This is a perfect example of the continuous progress we’re making, with leading retailers selecting the destination and upholding our position as one of the top 10 destinations in the UK. We look forward to welcoming them to Merry Hill later this year.”

The signings follow the recent news that Phase Eight and Hobbs are set to open a combined 6,000 sq ft of space at Merry Hill’s Upper Mall.

JLL and Time Retail Partners represent Merry Hill, whilst KENJI and Rituals both dealt direct.
