Wave of Lettings Washes Over Great Yarmouth

Posted by Ellandi on 26th Nov 2015

Ellandi have secured over 11,500 sq ft of new lettings at Great Yarmouth’s Market Gates Shopping Centre. Deals include a renewal, two relocations, the addition of four new retailers to the town and the occupation of four previously vacant units - all just ahead of the festive season. 

The centre is also amidst a full rebrand, highlighting the towns heritage, with internal and external signage due to be completed before the end of the year and solar panels have been installed on the roof of the car park which will supply clean energy to the centre decreasing its carbon footprint. 

Of the new retailers to enter the scheme, luxury jewellery brand Pandora has opened a 2,000 sq ft store and women’s fashion retailer Select has opened a 3000 sq ft store, both on a 10 year lease term. 

 In addition local salon Bellissimo has taken a 1,500 sq ft store, Smart Menswear have taken a 538 sq ft store and Warren James have taken a 2,202 sq ft store – all of which were previously vacant. 

Jewellery and accessory retailer Eye Candy has agreed a renewal of their current unit within the scheme whilst mobile operator, Mobile Solutions has relocated into the scheme from the High Street. Additionally That’s Entertainment have relocated from their previous unit to make space for Select. 

Furthermore, following the buyout of 99p stores by Poundland, an agreement has been made to refit and rebrand the store in January. 

Alex Brooker, asset management director at Ellandi, said: “This is a really positive outcome for the scheme as it goes through this transitional period.    

“The arrival of national retailers Pandora and Select shows a real confidence in the town whilst the renewal and relocations are encouraging and reflect the great trading environment.” 

Local MP and Minister of State for Housing and Planning, Brandon Lewis added: “Its fantastic news that shops and businesses are choosing to invest to Great Yarmouth, particularly in the run up to Christmas. The great shopping in Market Gates, coupled with the free parking trial currently being undertaken, shows confidence in Great Yarmouth as a shopping destination, and I hope this encourages other businesses to invest in this thriving market town.”
