The St David’s Partnership, owners of St David’s Cardiff, has announced the forthcoming expansion of Laings’ Cardiff showroom.
Set to relaunch next month, the upsized 4,735 sq ft showroom will welcome esteemed brands Rolex and Patek Philippe, marking a Welsh debut for the latter.
The transformation of the family-run jewellers’ existing boutique at St David’s forms an integral part of Laings’ UK-wide expansion plan, with a £3 million investment into its presence in Cardiff.
Speaking on behalf of the St David’s Partnership, Russell Loveland, senior portfolio director for Landsec, commented: “The investment by brands such as Laings and subsequent introduction of global names such as Patek Philippe to the centre cements Cardiff as a key UK retail destination and builds upon the already strong line up at St David’s.”
Joe Walsh, CEO of Laings, added: “Our showroom is located right at the heart of Cardiff and our expanded presence here means we can give the luxury brands we represent the stage on which to shine. We knew that we wanted St David’s to play an integral part in our extensive national investment programme, and the expansion of our Cardiff showroom has allowed us to create a new experience for our clients, centred around the exceptional service Laings is known for. We can’t wait to unveil our new showroom to our Welsh clientele next month.”
JLL and Cushman & Wakefield advised the St David’s Partnership, whilst Laings managed the expansion direct.
