Record store to make return to Nottingham

Music and entertainment store, Fopp, is to make a return to Nottingham.

The new outlet has taken the former Joules unit on Bridlesmith Gate in a deal brokered by Box Property Consultants.

Frankie Labbate, director of Box Property Consultants, said: “This is a special deal for Bridlesmith Gate, which proves our initial strategy of repurposing large parts of the street with street art and creative leasing would breathe life and vibrancy back into the street.

“This has ultimately has led to a lot of lettings and now we are attracting national retailers again to this exciting environment.

“We have secured FOPP on proper lease terms in what was a competitive bidding situation and I encourage other landlords to make contact if they have vacant properties nearby as we have other exciting tenants waiting in the wings.”

Fopp last had a Nottingham store in the now derelict Broadmarsh Shopping Centre in Nottingham. It was forced to close its doors in June 2020 as mall owner collapsed.
