Rockspring signs up Smiggle and Vision Express at Aylesbury centre

Rockspring Property Investment Managers LLP announced that it has completed two new lettings at Friars Square shopping centre in Aylesbury to Vision Express, the international retail optician, and Smiggle, the Australian stationery brand.

Vision Express has taken a 1,100-sq ft unit while Smiggle has let a 711-sq ft unit. Both retailers have signed 10 year leases. The new tenants join national and international brands including Next, which opened a 22,000 sqft store in Spring 2016, House of Fraser, H&M, Topshop, River Island, Office, Pandora, and New Look.

Shaun Hose, assistant director at Rockspring commented:

“These new lettings at Friars Square demonstrate the ongoing confidence of retailers in the scheme. Since Next opened we have seen significantly increased footfall and turnover from our occupiers and we are excited to be welcoming Vision Express and Smiggle to our tenant line up. We are in discussions with a number of additional new retailers and look forward to making further announcements soon.” 

Rockspring was advised by MMX Retail and Savills, the letting agents for Friars Square.
