Canada Life Asset Management, jointly represented by ARC Retail and Colliers International, has signed JD Sports Fashion plc to premises in Cheltenham’s Regent Arcade.
A new lease has been agreed with the British sports-fashion retailer on a 11,000 sq ft store, with plans to open before Christmas in premises formerly occupied by Top Shop following its closure earlier this year.
James Air, senior group acquisitions manager at JD Sports Fashion plc, commented: “We are pleased to be opening a new JD store within the heart of Cheltenham town centre, further developing our presence in the South West. The new store will benefit from our latest high level store environment, providing a full range of brands from within the JD stable, including several exclusives.”
Richard Nichol, senior asset manager at Canada Life Asset Management, said: “JD Sports’ arrival in Cheltenham is an important addition to the town’s established retail scene. As more and more consumers return to town centres and look to enjoy the physical shopping experience once again, the addition of JD Sports will further enhance Regent Arcade’s vibrant retail and leisure offering in the run up to the busy festive season.”
