Three new additions to Grand Arcade’s brand line-up
Three new brands will be joining the line-up at Grand Arcade, Cambridge, owned by Universities Superannuation Scheme, which has agreed lettings with retailers Mango, Skechers and Raspberry Pi.
Raspberry Pi, which makes small computers used to learn coding and electronics, is taking its first steps into bricks-and-mortar retail, selecting Grand Arcade as the site for its 1,172 sq ft debut physical store.
At the same time women’s fashion outlet Mango will occupy 7,800 sq ft and Skechers 2,830 sq ft. The latest deals bode well for Grand Arcade, which enjoyed a bumper year in 2018 after agreeing new lettings with Castle Fine Art and Daniel
Wellington. Both TM Lewin and Levi’s upsized their premises while long-term lease extensions were also secured with Apple, Gant, Swarovski, Phase Eight, Polarn O. Pyret and Sean Hanna.
Graham Burnett, head of property at USS, said: “We’re pleased to have made a strong start to the year with the signing of Mango, Skechers and Raspberry Pi. These latest exciting additions to our line-up further reinforce Grand Arcade’s position as the leading retail destination in Cambridge.”
