The Springs out of town retail and leisure centre in Leeds has announced that Dunelm will open at the scheme.
The UK’s largest homewares retailer has agreed a deal to occupy a prominent 18,362 sq ft sales store with mezzanine at The Springs.
It will be Dunelm’s first new smaller format store in the country and its first paperless receipt store in a bid to change customer habits and further promote a sustainable business.
Steve Barton, director of property at Dunelm, said: “We are delighted to announce that we will open a new store at The Springs Leeds on 1st April 2022. We chose The Springs due to its high-quality environment, and great transport and infrastructure links. It is an ideal scheme for us to launch our new format store that is around half the size of our standard superstore.”
Adam Varley, Director at Scarborough Group International (SGI), which is responsible for the development and asset management of The Springs and Thorpe Park Leeds, said: “We are delighted to welcome Dunelm as the latest popular shopping attraction at The Springs Leeds. The store complements our existing operators for high quality, good value homewares where shoppers can also enjoy a bite to eat, take in a movie or a game of adventure golf at Puttstars.
“Its unique location in the centre of a well-established business park gives it an added edge over other competing out of town retail destinations and is one of the reasons why national and independent retailers are keen to use it as a testbed for new concept stores or flagship premises.”
