There’s a new name in fashion arriving at Springfields Outlet Centre in Spalding as women’s retailer, Betty Barclay is set to open in October.
The new Betty Barclay unit at 4,000 sqft will be their largest outlet store in the UK.
This follows the successful launch of sports and fashion retailer, Raging Bull, the sports fashion brand led by former England rugby star Phil Vickery, which opened a 1,250 sqft unit at the Lincolnshire outlet in the summer.
They join Next Outlet, Fat Face, Ernest Jones the Outlet Collection and Starbucks, who have all opened new stores at Springfields recently, all overseen by Asset Management company, SLR Outlets.
As well as new brand openings, existing quality retailers including; Radley London, Weird Fish, Hallmark and Cotton Traders have all recently agreed new leases and are investing in new store fit outs.
The Outlet Centre is celebrating twelve consecutive years of turnover growth and is currently running at a 6 per cent turnover increase year-on-year.
There’s more to come to as the centre recently received planning consent for a £1 million investment into the leisure facilities on the site, including the UK’s largest JCB Young Driver Zone.
Recent improvements to Springfields has created four food-based plazas anchored by Starbucks, Costa Coffee, Blue Diamond and so Caffé Nero will also be opening soon.
