Intu signs up new coffee shop brand Bear for intu Derby
Up-and-coming coffee shop operator Bear is opening at intu Derby next month as it works with owner intu to launch its first shopping centre location targeting the destination’s high footfall. The 3,000-sq ft intu Derby site forms part of Bear’s plans to launch a number of new venues nationwide.
Bear has three successful Midlands sites in Uttoxeter, Stone and Derby’s Cathedral Quarter and opened a fourth in Soho earlier this year.
Nick Round, regional managing director at intu, said: “intu is well placed to help brands expand into the shopping centre market in this way thanks to our national presence and expertise. Bear is an exciting concept that will offer a fantastic new experience for intu Derby’s high footfall of visitors.”
