River Island to join line-up at Maidstone's Fremlin Walk

The new larger space for River Island will be an anchor store within Fremlin Walk and will span around 13,000 square feet.

The signing follows a successful year for Fremlin Walk’s new owner M&G Real Estate which purchased the shopping centre in late 2014. Other recent lettings include Quiz and Smiggle.

Also featuring a 100,000 square foot House of Fraser store, Fremlin Walk comprises 350,000 square feet of retail and restaurants in an open air, single level scheme. The existing line-up of over 50 retailers and dining operators includes the likes of Superdry, Zara, Topshop, H&M, Schuh, Bill’s, Patisserie Valerie and Pret a Manger.

Scott Linard, director of asset management at M&G Real Estate, said: “River Island joins Fremlin Walk at a time of competitive retailer interest in the shopping centre. Our first year of ownership was a very successful one with many new national brands arriving at the centre to improve our already very strong line-up of shops and eateries at Fremlin Walk and give our customers more reason to return time and time again.”
