St Modwen has completed 13,500 sq ft of lettings at Edmonton Green shopping centre, building on the centre’s national retailer line-up ahead of the Christmas shopping season.
Deichmann Shoes has opened a 4,600-sq ft store at 12-13 Market Square, having taken an assignment of Poundland’s lease. Poundland remains in the centre and has consolidated into a larger unit as part of the chain’s merger with 99p Stores.
St Modwen has also secured Select Fashion in a 4,900-sq ft unit at 14-15 Market Square on a ten-year lease on at £95,000pa. The womenswear retailer plans to open 200 new stores in the capital and south east by 2018.
Pep & Co completes the line-up, having agreed a five-year lease at an average rent of £75,000pa on a 4,000-sq ft unit in Market Square.
The new occupiers will complement the centre’s existing fashion offer which includes Matalan, Peacocks, JD and Sports Direct. Other occupiers include a range of leisure and restaurant operators, a thriving market of independent traders and local amenities such as banks, a library, healthcare, education and a Post Office.
Gary Morris, senior development manager for St Modwen said: “The new stores demonstrate Edmonton Green’s continuing appeal to major brands looking to increase their presence in locations which deliver a range of community amenities alongside a variety of independent traders and national retailers.”
St. Modwen is represented by Green & Partners and GCW. Rowley Hughes Thomson acted for Select and Savills for Pep & Co.
