The Frenchgate Limited Partnership has today announced that international discount designer store, T.K. Maxx, will launch a new 22,800sq ft store in early summer at Frenchgate Shopping Centre, Doncaster.
T.K. Maxx delivers an ever-changing selection of designer clothing, footwear and homeware at prices of up to 60% less than the RRP. The brand opened their first European store in Bristol in 1994 and now has over 350 stores across the UK and Ireland.
Commenting on the news on behalf of The Frenchgate Limited Partnership, Paul Devlin said: “Frenchgate is constantly evolving and we are delighted to welcome an exciting, nationally recognised retailer like T.K. Maxx who will further strengthen the fashion and home offer.
“The ongoing development of the centre has generated interest from numerous leading brands along with traders continuing to report strong sales figures. In addition, Yours has signed a ten-year lease extension and committed to a complete store refit.”
This news follows the recent signing for New Look Men, who recently launched a 3,500sq ft store. In the past 12 months, Frenchgate has seen 20 new store openings and refits including Topshop and JD Sports, who upsized to an 8,500sq ft store taking almost three times its original unit. This is in addition to the new H&M fit out taking place this year.
This all comes as part of an approximately £7 million redevelopment within the centre, constituting over 100,000 sq ft and approximately £4million of retailer investment in store fit outs.
