Trio of retailers commit to Sunderland

The Bridges shopping centre in Sunderland has announced three new retailer deals.

Clothing retailer Bank, which stocks designer brands such as Pauls Boutique, Lipsy, Superdry and Henleys will open a 3,350 sq ft unit on Market Square Mall on a 10 year lease. 

JD Sports Fashion PLC has agreed a 10 year lease and an upsize to a new 6,700 sq ft unit alongside Bank. Both retailers look set to launch in autumn 2010.

Internacionale will also be opening its doors in a brand new location within the centre this month on Crowtree Mail after signing a five year deal on a 3,300 sq ft unit.

The new deals are in quick succession to last month’s new arrivals, Disney and Blue Inc. In total more than 26,000 sq ft of retail space has been let this year bringing more than 100 new jobs to the region.

Jonathan Buckle, Bridges portfolio manager, comments: “The new deals are coming thick and fast this year which is phenomenal news for shoppers in Sunderland.

The Bridges attracted a footfall of more than 21 million last year. On average shoppers spend 61 minutes in the centre per visit and visit 71 times a year. Spend per visit on non-food related items has also increased by 20 per cent from £33.35 in the previous year to £40.
