ECCO to open first store in North East

ECCO is to open its first store in the North East at Intu Metrocentre in Gateshead as part of its UK expansion plans.

The company has taken a 1,750 square foot store to join the likes of Phase 8, H&M Kids, and Tessuti on the shopping centre’s Platinum Mall. 

David Butler, UK managing director of ECCO Shoes, said: “Over the past three years, we’ve doubled our number of shops in the UK to more than 40. We’re delighted now to be opening our first store in the North East. Intu Metrocentre is one of the top shopping centres in the country and a great place for ECCO. The design of the new shop will capture our Scandinavian attributes and fit perfectly into the high end surroundings of the Platinum Mall.”

Intu Metrocentre is one of the top five shopping centres in the UK, according to CACI, with two million square foot of retail, catering and leisure space.

Anchored by Marks & Spencer, House of Fraser and Debenhams, the centre has over 21 million customer visitors each year.

Intu regional director, Kate Grant, said: “We’re delighted to welcome ECCO to Intu Metrocentre and to the North East. Platinum Mall is a place where we want customers to feel special. Whether that’s from the welcoming atmosphere or the boutique feel we’ve created, our customers are able to shop, relax, meet friends and ultimately go home happy having spent a great day with us.”
