Hackett chooses Bluewater for second standalone store outside London
Luxury menswear brand Hackett London is to open a new store at the Land Securities operated Bluewater shopping centre in Kent.
The retailer has taken a 2,701 square foot store on the Lower Guildhall, adjacent to House of Fraser, Russell & Bromley, Jack Wills and Tommy Hilfiger.
Due to open in June, the store will be the second Hackett standalone store outside central London.
Jeremy Hackett, chairman of Hackett London, said: “Launching a store at Bluewater is a great opportunity for the brand as we have a significant following in the region, and is in line with our approach of opening stores in key cities throughout the world. Our position on the Guildhall puts us amongst many like-minded brands and we cannot wait to open.”
Hackett joins brands such as American Eagle Outfitters, Adidas and Le Creuset which have all opened statement stores at Bluewater in the last 12 months. The shopping centre has also recently announced an 11% increase in footfall over Easter compared to last year.
Russell Loveland, portfolio director at Land Securities, said: “Hackett is a great addition to Bluewater’s critical mass of premium brands. With it being their first standalone store in the region, it highlights once again Bluewater’s significant appeal as a must have location for some of the most highly regarded brands in the world.”
