Footwear retailer Skechers has signed a 10-year lease with Scottish shopping centre Glasgow Fort, to open a new 5,040 sq ft shop – one of its largest stores in the UK.
Lingerie specialist Ann Summers is also due to open its first out of town store, with a new 2,248 sq ft space at the site.
British Land, which owns the estate, said it has invested over £50m in the centre over the last five years, in conjunction with its subsidiary business Hercules Unit Trust (HUT), as it attempts to attract new retailers.
A survey conducted over the peak Christmas shopping period revealed retail spend per shopper had increased by 26% year-on-year. Retailers including Superdry and JD Sports have also opened stores at Glasgow Ford during the last few years.
The Scottish shopping centre has a catchment of more than two million people and houses retailers including Zara, Pandora, H&M, Topshop, River Island and Fat Face.
