The Inditex-owned fashion retailer has taken multiple units on SouthGate Place, comprising 32,000 sq ft of space over two floors.
Zara joins the recently-opened 5,000 sq ft Goldsmith’s store at SouthGate, as well as Oliver Bonas which opened earlier this year. The retailers sit alongside retailers including Lululemon, Levi’s, Apple, Urban Outfitters, Franco Manca, and Comptoir Libanais.
At the time of the signing, Kate Lea, head of shopping centre leasing at British Land, said: “ZARA’s decision to choose SouthGate for its first store in the city is a testament to the popularity of the destination, and the work we’ve done to make the centre as attractive and engaging for customers as possible.”
The lettings have built on what was a strong first half of the year for scheme owner British Land, which saw 1 million sq ft of retail deals being signed across its portfolio.
