Metro Bank and TK Maxx to open in Broadmead
Hammerson has confirmed the leasing of two major high street names, TK Maxx and Metro Bank, on Broadmead, an integral part of Bristol’s Shopping Quarter.
Metro Bank will be opening a store in Bristol later this year, taking a projected 24, 000 sq ft space which will include significant office and training spaces on the upper floors as part of its regional headquarters.
Hammerson has also secured a new site for the retailer TK Maxx. Bristol was home to the first UK TX Maxx store, which opened in 1994. The new store, relocated on Merchant Street, will open in June 2018 in what is anticipated to be one of the largest TK Maxx openings in Europe this year. The brand will be increasing its footprint in Bristol, with the store planned to be 34,500 sq ft, offering a full range of products including womenswear, menswear, kids’ clothes and toys, homeware, gifts and beauty.
Iain Mitchell, UK commercial director at Hammerson, said: “It is great news for Bristol Shopping Quarter, as well as for shoppers in the South West that space has been taken by these leading brands. We are delighted that Metro Bank has chosen Broadmead for its regional headquarters and welcome a new and larger store for TK Maxx.
“Already a retail, dining and leisure hub for leading global brands, Bristol continues to go from strength to strength as occupiers look to expand into the very best regional destinations.”
