Shopping Centre

Van Mildert chooses Silverburn for Scottish first

Published:  21 March, 2012

Van Mildert, the North West-based fashion boutique, is to open its first store in Scotland at Hammerson’s Silverburn shopping centre. 

 Van Mildert’s 5,337 sq ft store will open this spring and joins a further 6,065 sq ft of space that has been taken by Clarks and Fossil.

Clarks’ 4,525 sq ft  store will also open this spring and is adjacent to brands such as M&S and New Look.  The 1,540 sq ft Fossil opened on December 2 and has performed beyond expectations.

Martin Plocica, Hammerson portfolio director, said: “Van Mildert, Clarks and Fossil are significant additions to Silverburn’s existing critical mass of high street and high-end brands.  Each adds to Silverburn’s appeal as the regional destination of choice and, in conjunction with the wider offer, will help to draw more people from throughout the catchment.

 “Choosing Silverburn is also indicative of Hammerson’s commitment to creating an exciting offer by securing leading brands that are new to the Scottish consumer, which has also been so successfully achieved at Union Square.”

 The 1,000,000 sq ft scheme, owned by Hammerson and CPPIB and managed by Hammerson, is anchored by Marks and Spencer, Debenhams and Tesco Extra.

 CBRE and Culverwell acted for Hammerson.
