Sketchers, Neon Sheep and Quiz commit to Eastborne scheme
Three new stores have signed for the £85 million extension to The Beacon in Eastbourne: Global footwear brand Skechers, British clothing group Quiz and UK stationery and lifestyle brand Neon Sheep.
Andrew Rice, fund manager of centre owners Legal & General, said: “We are delighted to announce that three more units have signed for The Beacon. These are all quality brands that reflect the high level of confidence in Eastbourne as a shopping destination and expand the already significant offer for our customers.
“Since the first phase of the extension opened before Christmas, we have seen the steady arrival of new brands to the Centre which is particularly impressive considering the current economic climate within retail. It shows the appeal of The Beacon that has transformed the face of shopping in Eastbourne.”
These latest names join H & M, Next, FatFace, Schuh, Jack Wills, New Look, Flying Tiger, Paperchase, JoJo Maman Bébé and Lovisa’s on the ground floor of the extension. Nando’s is trading on the first floor with new restaurants Taylor’s Restaurant and Sports Bar and The Bok Shop due to open in the autumn.
The Centre’s eight-screen Cineworld opened last month on the second floor and announcements of further signings are expected soon.
