British womenswear Mint Velvet is set to open its first store in Milton Keynes at Centre:mk.

Opening this summer, the 2,800 sq ft store will be located on Centre:mk’s Silbury Arcade and will stock the brand’s full collection of womenswear, footwear, and accessories.

Founded in 2009, Mint Velvet now operates 107 stores and concessions across the UK, with a focus on expanding in premium retail destinations. The retailer will look to attract shoppers from Centre:mk’s affluent catchment area, and will join leading brands on Silbury Arcade such as Reiss, Jigsaw, The White Company, and H Beauty.

Kevin Duffy, centre director at Centre:mk, said: “Mint Velvet’s philosophy of effortless luxury and relaxed glamour perfectly complements the premium line-up of retailers we have curated on Silbury Arcade, each speaking to our affluent customer base and their needs. To be the destination of choice for a city debut store in Milton Keynes from a top performing brand is a real mark of confidence and reaffirms our position as a top 10 retail destination in the UK.”

The announcement follows strong leasing activity at Centre:mk throughout 2023, with brands including Mango, REISS, H&M and Phase Eight opening new stores at the scheme.
