Sports Direct to open at Fleet Walk

Published:  04 July, 2014

Sports Direct is set to open at Torquay’s Fleet Walk Shopping Centre in the centre’s largest letting for 10 years

Sports Direct will be taking a 12,700-sq ft unit on the second floor Rotunda Winter Gardens, an iconic part of the building close to Torquay Harbour.

Centre manager John Seymour said: “This is a massive vote of confidence for Fleet Walk and Torquay as a whole and quickly follows the arrival of action sports retailer Animal. The centre now has another anchor store creating up to 50 jobs and firmly puts this scheme into the driving seat as a sub-regional attraction boosting the local economy.”

Located in the centre of Torquay by the harbour and marina, Fleet Walk shopping centre has 140,000 sq ft of retail space and a secure car park with over 414 spaces. Leading stores include, TK Maxx, Poundland, Wetherspoons, Pizza Hut and Laura Ashley.

DTZ acts as property manager on behalf of asset manager CBRE. Macarthur Wilson is letting agent.
