29th November 2023 | Jack Oliver

Hobbs and Phase Eight have opened at Caledonia Park in Gretna, marking their first and second outlets in Scotland respectively.

The two brands have opened a joint 3,000 sq ft unit in the centre of the scheme, adjacent to brands including Polo Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade New York, Radley London, and recent additions Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein.

Phase Eight and Hobbs at Caledonia Park offers a range of womenswear including coats, jackets, knitwear, shoes, bags, and accessories.

Caraline Money, global group retail director at TFG Brands, which owns the two retailers, said: “The opening of Hobbs’ first outlet in Scotland is a huge milestone for us. Scotland, and Caledonia Park specifically, deliver so much potential and opportunity in terms of demographic and spend and we are excited to be part of a destination that is continuing to grow and evolve. We look forward to delivering Hobbs and Phase Eight’s timeless collections to a wider audience, just in time for the Christmas period.”

Maria Averkina, asset and development manager at pension fund Railpen – the scheme’s investment manager – added: “The opening of Hobbs and Phase Eight further illustrates the growth that Caledonia Park has witnessed this year. It highlights the success of our investment and refurbishment in creating a space that attracts high-quality retailers. These new brands complement our varied mix of aspirational labels and provide that luxury element which we know consumers value, and we look forward to watching them thrive at Caledonia Park.”

Railpen said that Caledonia Park is set to continue on a positive leasing trajectory, with a number of brands in advanced discussions to join the scheme next year.
