Ernest Jones upsizes at WestQuay

Ernest Jones is to upsize to a larger store at Southampton’s WestQuay shopping centre.

Due to open in March, the new 3,200 square foot store will be situated on WestQuay’s upper level adjacent to brands such as Steamer Trading and Jack Wills.

Sarah Mander, assistant director for retail leasing, at Hammerson, said: “Ernest Jones’ decision to upsize their store reflects how strong the sector performs at WestQuay.  It is also indicative of the centre’s overall performance, which continues to go from strength-to-strength. This is generating significant demand from leading brands, both those with experience of WestQuay seeking to upsize, and new entrants.”  

Ernest Jones is the latest in a number of brands to upsize at WestQuay or select the store for a new regional flagship.  In the last 12 months, Fat Face relocated into a larger store and Jack Wills opened its second full-line non-High Street store, joining Cath Kidston, White Stuff, Superdry, Boux Avenue, Timberland and Pravins.    

Hammerson has also recently announced that Wahaca, Five Guys, Zizzi Nando’s and Byron are to open in WestQuay Watermark, its mixed-use leisure led development adjacent to WestQuay.
