Shopping centre Freeport Fleetwood adds linen brand Christy to homewares mix


Shopping Centre ‘Freeport Fleetwood’ has boosted its thriving homeware portfolio with luxury linen brand, Christy, positioning the Centre as a homes mecca for savvy, house proud shoppers.

British brand Christy has been providing luxury home linens since 1850 and, in addition to providing linens for royalty and Bloomingdales, the company is most famously the exclusive designer and manufacturer of the towels used at the Wimbledon Lawn and Tennis Championships. Plus this year it boasts the sole license for Official Rugby World Cup 2015 toweling merchandise.

The  1,300sq ft unit, which opens this weekend, Saturday 3 October at 10am, will offer shoppers luxury towels and bed linens made of the highest quality Supima and Egyptian Cottons and designed by the company’s in-house team of British designers, all at up to 60% off high street prices.

The Christy store will be in good company alongside home stalwarts such as Rectella, Pro Cook, Denby and Gift Company.

Freeport Fleetwood’s centre manager John Magee said: “We are really pleased with how strong our current homeware offering is and delighted to further boost it with such a successful brand. We’re excited to open our Christy store this weekend and bring such stylish, high-quality linens to our customers. We are also pleased to offer any rugby fans out there access to exclusive World Cup towels which is a nice little touch for the Centre.”

Store manager Janet Burman said: “We are looking forward to opening our doors to our new Freeport Fleetwood store.  We will be in great company amongst the centre’s strong portfolio of brands.  We have a number of ranges of stunning bedroom and bathroom linens that are guaranteed to complement the Fleetwood shoppers’ homes, no matter what their style.”

To celebrate the store opening, Freeport Fleetwood will be offering a further 10% off all stock in the store for the first week..

Freeport Fleetwood outlet centre offers a wide choice of fashion, homewares, health & beauty, accessories and gift ideas from designer and high street stores including Moss, M&S Outlet, Next Clearance and GAP Outlet.

Late night shopping is also available every Thursday until 8pm.
