Grosvenor has signed three new retailers at Festival Place, Basingstoke as it looks to upgrade the tenant mix at the mall, which opened three years ago. L.K. Bennett, Austin Reed, and Phase Eight will open new stores in the centre

Footwear and fashion retailer L.K. Bennett will open a 2,400 sq ft store in Queen Anne’s Walk, on the centre’s upper level. Austin Reed is taking a 3,000 sq ft store and Phase Eight 1,750 sq ft in the same part of the mall.

Festival Place has also been receiving accolades from high-profile members of the retail industry. Speaking at the Retail Week conference, Marks & Spencer’s chief executive, Stuart Rose, said: “Go and see Basingstoke. It's a thriving retail community. Festival Place is an excellent example of town centre regeneration, it's become a leading regional shopping centre and the high quality design has attracted many of the UK's best brands - I thoroughly recommend it.”
