9th November 2022 | Jack Oliver

Five new retailers have signed leases to join the Cribbs Mall shopping centre near Bristol, with the mall now nearly at full capacity.

Amassing a combined area of 13,607 sq ft, toy store The Entertainer joins fashion brand Mango, arts and crafts supplier The Works, tailors Suit Direct, and beauty specialist Rituals in setting up shop in Cribbs Causeway.

Jewellers F.Hind has also recommitted to the mall, signing a six-year lease renewal for its 1,449 sq ft unit.

The announcements come off the back of over 30,000 sq ft of new occupational deals over the last 12 months. This includes an expanded fashion offering with the arrival of Kurt Geiger, Carvela, and Tommy Hilfiger. Meanwhile the opening of H Beauty has grown the centre’s beauty offer. During this period Cribbs also welcomed luxury watch makers Bremont, while ProCook and Ribble Cycles have also used Cribbs to grow their physical retail presence.

Rituals will occupy an 1,802 sq ft unit on a 10-year lease, which will be its first store in the West Country; The Entertainer has taken a 3,788 sq ft unit on the upper level of the centre  on a 10-year lease and will be trading in the run up to Christmas. Meanwhile, Mango has agreed a 10-year lease on the 3,858 sq ft former Gap unit located towards the centre of the mall. The Works will occupy a 2,366 sq ft unit on a 10-year lease and Suit Direct has signed a 5-year lease for a 1,793 sq ft unit.

Simon Green, portfolio director at M&G Real Estate, said: “These new lettings demonstrate the strength of the large regional and leisure centres in strategic, accessible locations. We are also excited to be part of the wider growth of the Cribbs Causeway area which will include thousands of new homes and a new arena at YTL’s Filton Airfield development, as well as the arrival of Bristol Zoo who will be moving to the nearby Wild Place Project. All of this will help to further strengthen footfall across Cribbs Causeway and continue to make it an attractive home for retailers.”
