Union Square secures a debut for Aberdeen with Homesense


Hammerson announces that homeware retailer Homesense has chosen Union Square to open its first store in Aberdeen and its second only store in Scotland.

Part of the TK Maxx group, Homesense launched in 2008 offering branded and quality homeware at a significant discount to the high street and department store prices. The brand now boasts 44 stores across the UK and at Union Square, it will be taking a 900sq m store featuring a mezzanine level.

The store will be located on the shopping park, alongside complementary home furnishing retailers Dreams and Hobbycraft.

Union Square has been the shopping destination of choice for a number of brands looking to expand in Scotland. Ideally located in the city centre, adjacent to the train station, the centre is home to brands including Byron Burger, The White Company, Hugo Boss and Hotel Chocolat.

Iain Mitchell, UK commercial director at Hammerson, said: “Homesense is a great addition to the retail mix at Union Square, significantly strengthening its homeware offer. The centre has long been considered the premier regional shopping centre and the fact that Homesense has chosen the venue to expand in Scotland is reflective of its appeal.”
