Sports Direct, Flannels and USC sign up for Portsmouth centre
RPMI Railpen has announced that Sports Direct, Flannels, and USC have selected Cascades Shopping Centre in Portsmouth for 50,000 sq ft of trading space due to open in spring 2020.
Split across two floors, the new stores join Cascades Shopping Centre’s existing line-up of major anchor tenants, including Primark, H&M, and TK Maxx, as the retail destination celebrates its 30th anniversary.
Emily Atkinson at RPMI Railpen commented on the signing: “In its 30th year, Cascades continues to pick-up pace in terms of the breadth and diversity of its retail mix, as is reflected by Sports Direct, Flannels and USC taking such a significant store space. Our investment in the centre’s refurbishment will create an even more inviting atmosphere for consumers, providing a revitalised setting for these new retailers as well as neighbouring brands.”
Andrew Philip, Centre Manager at Cascades, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Sports Direct’s attractive portfolio into the shopping centre. They are a huge brand, and we know that our local shoppers will be pleased to see many top clothing brands, including its Flannels range, introduced when they open in 2020.
AS Retail represented Cascades Shopping Centre in the deal, while Sports Direct was represented by CBRE.
