Cheshire Oaks starts work on £3m refurbishment

Work has started at Cheshire Oaks, the UK’s largest designer outlet, on a £3m refurbishment that will overhaul walkways, facades and street furniture.

The centre comprises 348,000 sq ft of retail space and more than 145 brands including Barbour, Burberry and Mulberry. The owner, McArthurGlen, plans to improve customer facilities by creating a lighter, more contemporary environment.

New brands to open this summer at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet include Jack Wolfskin, Yankee Candle and Yo Sushi. The revamp will be completed by September.

McArthurGlen’s managing director for the UK, Sven Gaede, said: “The centre’s new refurbishment is part of our review of all six McArthurGlen Designer Outlets in the UK, as we look to take the shopping environment and retail experience at all six centres to new heights of excellence – and one that matches that of our newer, flagship centres in Continental Europe.”

Bridgend Designer Outlet near Cardiff is undergoing a £2m refurbishment, which includes a complete replacement of the children’s play area. The work started in May and is due to finish by the end of the summer.

Swindon Designer Outlet’s £35m expansion and refurbishment is on track to open in spring 2015. It includes the opening of a new retail space within the historic, listed Longshop building, to increase total retail space from 207,000 sq ft to more than 250,000 sq ft.

Ashford Designer Outlet in Kent has a planned 75,000 sq ft new phase due to open in late 2016. Further expansions are in the early planning stages at East Midlands and York.
