More new stores are on their way to Queensgate…

Following the recent announcement that Joules clothing will take part of the empty BHS unit in Queensgate Shopping Centre, management tell us that creative stationery retailer, Smiggle will take another part.

Both are expected to open before Christmas and bring a new and exciting feel to Queensgate’s Central Square. Specific details are yet to be confirmed but will be announced soon.

“We’re very excited to welcome Smiggle to Queensgate, which we know has become a hugely popular brand across the world and well-known for its bright, bold and creative products,” says Mark Broadhead, Centre Director at Queensgate.

Smiggle offers fashion-forward stationery including, bags, pencil cases, pens, gadgets, books, games, and accessories. The Australian brand launched in 2003 and has stores in seven counties across the globe, including over 100 in the UK.

Queensgate Shopping Centre will release further information about the launch as soon as possible.

This all follows the recent announcement that Yankee Candle is taking a unit near Superdry in the centre with the latest shop-fit concept and will be opening its doors at the end of September, creating 10 jobs.
