Islington Square welcomes three new retailers
Cain International, the privately held investment firm led by Jonathan Goldstein, has announced that Islington Square is to add three food, fashion and furniture retailers to its mixed-use north London development .
Sproot, a sustainable fast-food brand, has opened in a 780 square foot unit while The Pantry Underwear has taken a 1,120 square foot shop to sell its range of underwear, swimwear, maternity and sleepwear after moving from nearby Camden Passage.
Meanwhile, furniture retailer The Lounge Co. has signed for a 4,700 square foot store which is due to open in January. Created by the makers of G Plan, Duresta and Parker Knoll, The Lounge Co. sells pet-proof sofas in eco-friendly recycled fabrics and family-friendly wipe-clean velvets. The Islington store will have the largest collection of The Lounge Co. furniture in the country and will be spread over two floors. The space will also have a swatch hub with over 180 fabrics and leather options to take away.
Craig Lyus, head of trade at The Lounge Co., said: “We’re incredibly excited to open at Islington Square. It’s going to offer the ultimate Lounge Co. experience, with our biggest and best range of furniture in a superb retail space that’s brimming with quirky charm and character.”
Islington Square is situated directly off Islington’s Upper Street on the site of north London’s former postal sorting office. Other retailers with a presence at the scheme include Borough Kitchen, Arlo & Jacob, APC and Anatome.
Neil Barber, retail leasing director at Cain International, said: “Market trends stemming from the pandemic have encouraged the sector to rethink how we curate destinations to appeal to both the local demographic as well as generate footfall from further afield. Retailers like Lounge Co., The Pantry Underwear and Sproot play a key role in ensuring schemes like Islington Square do just this, and these new offerings will provide our residents and visitors with something unique.”
“We look forward to watching the success of The Lounge Co., Sproot and The Pantry Underwear and have no doubt that all three will become a real hotspot for those visiting, working and living at Islington Square.”
