Hat-trick of lettings at Derby shopping centre

Ted Baker and Søstrene Grene have become the latest brands to take space at Derby’s flagship retail destination, Derbion.

The fashion retailer has taken the lease on a 2,960 sq ft unit at the shopping centre, while Søstrene Grene – the Scandinavian furniture and home accessories brand – will occupy more than 6,000 sq ft of floorspace.

As we reported yesterday, fast-growing Nottingham coffee roaster 200 Degrees is also preparing to open at Derbion having signed the lease on a 1,585 sq ft unit at the centre.

Derbion has welcomed a raft of big-name brands in recent months, including Tommy Hilfiger and Jack Wills, and recently invested £2m in a food court refurbishment.

Frasers is due to open a 127,000 sq store at the shopping centre in November.

Michael Boundy, senior asset manager at Derbion, said: “Our leasing momentum has continued to gather pace this year with a string of major lettings alongside some significant upsizes and store refurbishments.

“We’re proud to be announcing the arrival of Ted Baker, Søstrene Grene and 200 Degrees as we broaden our offer across retail, home and food and beverage, and we continue to drive forward our investment across the centre to ensure it remains the most attractive proposition for leading brands and our customers.”
