The 11,564 sq ft unit is set to open in early 2022, according to Property Week.

In further positive news for the regional shopping centre, fashion giant H&M has also agreed to extend its lease by a further 10 years. Under the new arrangement, the current 24,000 sq ft H&M store will be given a full refurbishment, with work currently under way. 

The Liberty Shopping Centre has also expanded its retail and leisure offer, securing deals with eight operators for a combined total of 22,594 sq ft. The new arrivals span a variety of sectors including fashion, health and beauty, food and beverage. 

Steven Gray, head of European retail asset management at Global Mutual, which manages the centre, told the publication: “This latest round of lettings highlights the appeal of our centre to both independent and international retailers, who recognise the value of what we can offer as a shopping destination”. 

He added: “It is hugely encouraging to see major retailers like Frasers Group and H&M investing in their physical presence within our centre, which we believe will have a positive ripple effect for all our retailers”.
