T.K. Maxx, the discount designer store, is set to launch a brand new 22,800 sq ft store in early summer at Frenchgate Shopping Centre, Doncaster.
T.K. Maxx offers a selection of designer clothing, footwear and homeware. The brand opened its first European store in Bristol in 1994 and now has over 350 stores across the UK and Ireland.
This announcement follows the recent signing for New Look Men, which has launched a 3,500 sq ft store.
In the past 12 months, Frenchgate has seen 20 new store openings and refits including Topshop and JD Sports, who upsized to an 8,500 sq ft store taking almost three times its original unit.
This is in addition to the new H&M fit out taking place this year.
This all comes as part of a £7m redevelopment within the centre, constituting over 100,000 sq ft and approximately £4m of retailer investment in store fit outs.
Commenting on the news on behalf of The Frenchgate Limited Partnership, Paul Devlin said: “Frenchgate is constantly evolving and we are delighted to welcome an exciting, nationally recognised retailer like T.K. Maxx who will further strengthen the fashion and home offer
“The ongoing development of the centre has generated interest from numerous leading brands along with traders continuing to report strong sales figures.
“In addition, Yours has signed a ten-year lease extension and committed to a complete store refit.”
Rawstron Johnson and Time Retail acted for Frenchgate, which is managed by Lambert Smith Hampton’s Belfast office.
