Commenting on behalf of the St David’s partnership, Russell Loveland, senior portfolio Director for Landsec, said: “We’ve seen a clear desire from consumers throughout the UK towards buying more from local independent businesses, so we know Clothing Culture and Floris will make strong additions to the variety of successful Welsh brands we have on offer at the centre. Both brands have found success online and are now taking the next step into expanding their physical presence at St David’s, and it’s great that we’re able to be part of this journey with them.”
