Premium designer retailer Tessuti is set to open at Merseyway in Stockport having signed up to take 5,000 sq ft in the popular shopping centre.
Selling the latest clothing from over 100 designers ranging from Barbour, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein to Moschino, DKNY and Michael Kors, the letting is a huge boost for Merseyway and will expand the centre’s retail offer even further.
When it opens before Christmas, Tessuti’s new store will create 10 jobs and attract shoppers from across the region who are seeking the latest fashions.
The news comes as a significant number of leases at Merseyway have been completed seeing Thorntons, EE, WH Smith and TUI commit their future to the centre as advanced discussions with other national operators looking to open in Stockport continue.
Cllr Kate Butler, Cabinet Member for Economy & Regeneration at Stockport Council said:
“It’s great to see Tessuti opening a new store in Merseyway and I wish them every success for the future. Merseyway continues to be very popular attracting millions of visitors each and every year. Over the coming weeks we’ll be revealing more details about the first stages of our plans to redevelop Merseyway that will build on its success, and give even more reasons to visit Stockport town centre.”
James Air, Group Acquisitions Manager for JD Sports Fashion, parent company of Tessuti said
“Tessuti have been looking for the right opportunity to bring our premium men’s and women’s fashion to Stockport for some time so I’m delighted that we’ve found a new store right in the heart of Merseyway. Tessuti will be showcasing a wide range of premium brands including Emporio Armani, Polo Ralph Lauren, Parajumpers, Hugo Boss, Paul and Shark, Paul Smith, Love Moschino, Android Homme, Mallet, DKNY and Karl Lagerfeld.
“We’re looking to forward to opening our doors to shoppers in time for Christmas.”
The opportunities on offer for retailers in Stockport continue to grow as work on the Council’s £1 billion town centre transformation continues. The neighbouring Redrock leisure development which opened a year ago has exceeded all trading and visitor predictions.
Merseyway Shopping Centre is being managed on behalf of the Council by CBRE. CBRE and Barker Proudlove are acting as joint agents for Merseyway.
