Pizza chain Papa John’s has agreed a new 15 year lease on a 1,260 sq ft unit, while Loungers, the café chain, has also agreed a 15 year lease on a 3,500 sq ft space. Toy retailer The Entertainer has also signed up for a 4,000 sq ft store.
These three retailers will occupy the newly refurbished unit at 32-36 West Walk opposite the town’s library and leisure centre.
Karizma, a hairdresser and barber, and Yours Clothing have each agreed a five year lease on 1,099 sq ft and 3,726 sq ft respectively, while Cards N Wrap, the gift retailer, has signed a three year lease at 31 North Walk.
Yate Shopping Centre is located 12 miles to the north east of Bristol and provides over 550,000 sq ft of retail space.
Savills acted for the landlords on the deals.
Alex Kalebic, associate director in the retail team at Savills Bristol, said: “We are delighted to have secured these new retailers for the town, further enhancing Yate Shopping Centre’s reputation as a retail destination. The centre is a large, well-let scheme that benefits from a strong catchment population and annual footfall in the centre standing at around 12 million people. We are currently in discussion with a number of other retailers looking to take space in the centre.”
