Retail property advisor Newmark Retail has worked with popular vintage chain Beyond Retro to secure its latest UK store in Cardiff.
The new 6,000sq ft space is located on The Hayes, Morgan Quarter, opposite Cardiff’s St. David’s shopping centre – a prime location for shoppers, attracting over 37 million visitors a year.
Beyond Retro offers one of the largest selections of handpicked, on-trend vintage clothing in-store and online, with more than seven million items sold since it launched in 2002.
The new Cardiff outlet, which will eventually hold over 10,000 items of clothing, takes the chain’s UK store count to seven, with existing locations in London, Bristol and Brighton. The retailer also has shops in Sweden and Finland.
Newmark Retail is working with Beyond Retro to support its ambitious expansion plans. The Cardiff store is the first location on its roadmap, with further deals in the pipeline for London and key UK cities in the coming months.
Beyond Retro managing director Kate Peters says: “Cardiff’s fashion and cultural scene is so creative and diverse, we think our expansive trend-led and sustainable fashion collection will really resonate with the city. The new location is the perfect spot for our large-scale sustainable fashion offering, and Newmark Retail’s support has been vital in securing it.”
Amanda O’Flaherty, director at Newmark Retail, said: “We have been working with Beyond Retro to establish a growth and expansion plan that will meet the brand’s objectives and appeal to shoppers looking for fantastic vintage finds. Cardiff is an ideal first location in our partnership, and we are looking forward to working with the team as we move through its expansion plans together.”
