Global youth fashion brand to open in Manchester Arndale
Manchester Arndale has announced that luxury fashion brand Tommy Hilfiger will be moving into a 3,313 sq ft space at the centre this month.
As one of the world’s most recognised lifestyle brands, Tommy Hilfiger is a favourite with consumers worldwide. The new store will offer the brand’s autumn 2021 range of men’s and women’s apparel, footwear and accessories inspired by the exploration of nature.
The new store’s design will reflect the brand’s playful ‘Tommy on the Move’ concept, featuring stacked cardboard ‘moving boxes’, logo taping and neon signs against a clean, white backdrop with red, white and blue colour-block accents.
The store will offer a click and collect service, enabling consumers to order products on tommy.com and then collect in-store.
The new retailer will offer additional services including e-commerce returns in-store, in-store shopping with at-home delivery, plus a find-in-store feature, enabling consumers to identify the nearest store, check stock levels and geo-locate any product.
The arrival of Tommy Hilfiger follows the announcement that UK fashion brands, Kurt Geiger, and sister company Carvela have taken a combined 4,642 sq ft of space at the centre.
Colin Flinn, non-executive director, and spokesperson for Manchester Arndale, said: “Our goal is to ensure that Manchester Arndale continues to retain its status as the home of leading fashion brands so that it remains an exciting and progressive place for all of our customers to visit.
“The arrival of Tommy Hilfiger helps strengthen our position as the premier shopping destination in the North West, especially coming off the back of recent lettings to a number of other popular high end retail brands.”
He added: “As we continue to move out of the pandemic, we are delighted to see shoppers returning to Manchester Arndale. We look forward to sharing more exciting news about other new occupiers in the months to come as we continue to widen our base of occupiers, bringing in a diverse set of retailers alongside leisure and lifestyle operators, supported by a wide ranging food and beverage offer.”
Manchester Arndale is one of the UK’s largest city centre shopping malls, welcoming more than 42 million visitors in an average year. It boasts an impressive line-up of more than 200 shops and restaurants, including international, national, and local brands.
