20th June 2023 | Jack Oliver

Sunglass Hut will be joining the retail line-up at Manchester Arndale after agreeing to sign a 10-year lease at the scheme.

Opening in a 932 sq ft unit, Sunglass Hut will offer a range of eyewear from various fashion brands, as well as accessories, cases, cleaning kits, and replacement lenses.

The signing follows a range of lettings at the Manchester scheme to retailers including Moss, Gilly Hicks, Nike, Manchester City, Clarks, Flying Tiger, MINISO, Tommy Hilfiger, Kick Game, and Kurt Geiger.

Manchester Arndale has also welcomed a number of food and beverage operators in recent times, including Black Sheep Coffee, Krispy Kreme, and Slim Chickens.

Steve Gray, head of European retail asset management at Global Mutual, said: “Sunglass Hut’s arrival further enhances the great range of retailers we have at Manchester Arndale and will no doubt resonate with Manchester’s vibrant and fashion-forward demographic, which includes students and families.”

M&G Real Estate and Global Mutual act as joint asset managers of Manchester Arndale. Metis Real Estate and Time Retail Partners are the scheme’s retained letting agents.
