GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Smiggle to debut in Aberdeen

Australian stationery brand Smiggle is to open its first store in Aberdeen at the Bon Accord & St Nicholas shopping centres.

Smiggle opened its first UK shop in London in 2014 and now has 42 stores across the country.

The brand will move into the EE store in the Bon Accord mall, while EE will relocate to the former Build-a-Bear unit.

The new store will open in June.

Craig Stevenson, manager of Bon Accord & St Nicholas, said: “It is a fantastic coup for us that Smiggle has chosen to open its first Aberdeen store in Bon Accord & St Nicholas.

“We have introduced a range of family oriented stores in the past 12 months, from JoJo Maman Bebe to Scallywags, making us a great destination for the younger generation. We are looking forward to Smiggle opening its doors in the spring in what will be a colourful addition to Bon Accord & St Nicholas.”

Bon Accord & St Nicholas will also welcome kitchen specialist Magnet to a shop at 139 George Street, adjacent to Bon Accord and immediately opposite the city’s John Lewis department store. The showroom is due to open in spring.

Stevenson added: “Magnet is now also close to opening in a George Street unit close to the centre. This is an exciting addition for us which adds to our great line-up of retailers and further enhances our offering to shoppers.”

Owned by BMO Real Estate Partners and managed by Savills, Bon Accord & St Nicholas are situated in Aberdeen city centre and are home to around 100 stores including Next, Topshop and Topman, New Look and River Island.
