Livingston Designer Outlet expands line-up
Outlet retail operator Realm has announced that it has secured a flurry of lettings for the Livingston Designer Outlet.
The deals bring the total volume of retail space exchanged in the past year to 25,335 square feet.
Barbour will be opening a 1,601 square foot unit at the scheme this month while Timberland has signed to take 3,181 square foot unit.
In addition, Hugo Boss has committed to a long-term lease at the scheme for a 2,873 square foot store.
Colin Brooks, managing director of Realm, said: “Despite the current trend for more prudent spending habits in full-price retail, retailers are recognising the growing popularity of discount shopping among consumers, and the attributed turnover that can result from this.
“As a result, we are seeing different brands breaking the market. This has had a positive impact on existing players who are making the additional investment to bring shop fit-outs in line with full-price stores, as evidenced by Hugo Boss’ additional outlay at Livingston. As we continue to see UK and international consumers favouring the premium sector, we expect this to continue.”
A total of 14 new brands have committed to the 299,177 square foot scheme in recent months. These include Lindt Chocolate Shop, Skopes, Vans, Playtex, White Stuff, Original Penguin, Graham & Brown, Hamley’s and Prezzo.
