Swedish fashion brand lands in the north at Manchester Arndale
intu and M&G Real Estate have announced that Manchester Arndale will be the location for Monki’s first concept store in the North of England. The young women’s fashion brand, Monki, which ‘fuses Scandi cool design with the energy of Asian street style’, has signed to take 5,600 sq ft.
Monki will be located on New Cannon Street within Manchester Arndale. The retailer opened its first UK store on Carnaby Street, London and this will be its fifth UK store following the success of their stores in London, Bristol and Glasgow.
Kannika Mall, Asset Manager at M&G Real Estate, comments on behalf of the joint owners: “The fact that leading, internationally known brands, choose the centre as a key location for their expansion in Northern England, is further testament to Manchester Arndale’s prominent position as one of the UK’s leading retail hubs.
“Manchester Arndale is the ideal location for exciting brands seeking to expand and grow their UK presence, as we have seen with the latest arrivals of exciting fashion brands such as Victoria’s Secret and Paul Smith.”
