Moss to suit up at Gloucester Quays amid flurry of retail activity

29th April 2024 | Jack Oliver

Menswear retailer Moss is set to open its first store at Peel Retail & Leisure’s Gloucester Quays outlet centre.

The signing follows a flurry of retail activity at the scheme – which is celebrating its 15th anniversary – including the upcoming upsize of footwear retailer Skechers.

Moss, which has dropped ‘Bros’ from its name to rebrand as a more modern and diverse retailer, has agreed to take 1,948 sq ft of space with the store set to open in May.

Central to the store’s offer will be Moss’ spring/summer 2024 collection, as well as new seasonal style solutions to meet a growing demand for suits for workwear, weddings, races, proms, and black tie events.

The store will also offer a team of in-store stylists as well as host the brand’s custom-made tailoring service.

Meanwhile, Skechers is set to upsize at Gloucester Quays, opening a new 4,500 sq ft store – 50% larger than its previous location – opposite Moss and Timberland. The new store will increase the available range of footwear for men, women, and children.

Sporting heritage clothing brand raging bull has also relocated, taking a 1,400 sq ft unit.

Paul Carter, asset director at Peel Retail & Leisure, said: “Gloucester Quays continues to be a hotspot for leading retailers, and the commitment of new brands like Moss combined with investment from existing tenants like Skechers, is testament to its sustained appeal as an established, top 10 outlet. Responding to consumer demand is of the utmost importance, and maintaining a refreshed, diverse mix of retailers plays a significant role in this, something we’ve championed for 15 years and no doubt why Gloucester Quays continues to perform. We look forward to welcoming Moss to the outlet, and seeing the continued success of Skechers and Raging Bull.”

The news follows the recent announcement that Gloucester Quays experienced another period of record sales from April 2023 to March 2024, with sales and footfall increasing by 11% and 7% respectively.
