Land Securities has announced that fashion brand, Gap, has opened its new UK concept store at Bluewater, Kent. The 10,000 sq ft unit is situated on Bluewater’s lower Rose Gallery, next to the forthcoming Missguided, which is set to launch this summer.
An in-house team created the new Gap store, which pioneers a new concept design in the UK and includes women’s, men’s, kids and baby collections, as well as GapFit and Gap Body alongside the brand’s regular apparel and icons.
Commenting on the concept store Russell Loveland, portfolio director at Land Securities, co-owner and asset manager of Bluewater, said: “Gap’s decision to open their new concept store for the UK at Bluewater reaffirms its position as Europe’s leading retail and leisure destination. Gap’s store, which brings a number of innovations to the guest experience, is part of our strategy to create a select series of statement stores at Bluewater, where the emphasis is on providing something unique.”
