A new independent boutique department store is to open at the Fox Valley town centre development in Stocksbridge, north Sheffield, in September.
The 17,000 sq ft store, to be called Sandersons, will be spread over two floors. The ground floor will house cosmetics and fragrances, footwear, homewares and menswear. There will also be a brow bar, nail bar and a teeth-whitening service.
The first floor will be dedicated to womenswear and a tearoom.
Sandersons will be run by Deborah Holmes, a local businesswoman who co-owns Dransfield Properties, the property firm leading the Fox Valley development, with her husband.
She told Drapers: “I wanted to open a department store that offers brands which speak to the area. North Sheffield is unique – there are lots of people there but spread across lots of villages. I wanted to offer them a unique experience of shopping.”
Holmes intends to launch an online store a year after Sandersons opens its doors.
The £42m Fox Valley development will turn a 28 acre former steelworks site into a new shopping destination.
The centre is due to open in June, but Sandersons will open in September after the summer Sale period, so it can launch with new season stock.
