Universal Works to open new Nottingham store
Fashion brand Universal Works is to launch a new standalone store in Nottingham.
Founded by David Keyte and Stephanie Porritt in the city 2009, the brand is now stocked in more than 300 stores across the world.
In a deal brokered by FHP Property Consultants, Universal Works has taken a new unit at 120-122 Derby Road which forms part of the Canning Chambers redevelopment. .
Keyte said: “We have outgrown our current space within Rough Trade so are really pleased to be opening the doors to a bigger and bolder, standalone store on Derby Road. We are not your typical ‘high street’ kind of operator and prefer alternative neighbourhood style locations with potential and community spirit. Derby Road has evolved over the last few years and we can’t wait to open the doors and become part of the community here.”
Sitting at the top of Derby Road on the edge of Nottingham city centre, Canning Chambers stood derelict for many years before being purchased and refurbished by landlord Wollaton Nottingham
Oliver Marshall, director at FHP, said: “The letting to Universal Works is a major step forward for the location on Derby Road, but also for the city of Nottingham, showcasing the success of a homegrown business. This a really exciting brand with a massive following and hopefully it will encourage more brands to the area and Nottingham.”
