The Body Shop and Smiggle acquire in The Quays Shopping Centre, Newry

MMX Retail have recently advised retained clients The Body Shop and Smiggle to acquire new stores at the Quay Shopping Centre in Newry, Northern Ireland.

Both clients will open their stores later in the Autumn in the scheme.

Smiggle has acquired Unit 10 which is 1,000 sq ft, with The Body Shop taking Unit 16 which is 1,400 sq ft. Other recent lettings at the scheme include Superdry, Sketchers and an extended H&M store. M&S and Next will both open new stores in the scheme extension later in 2017.

Nick Symons Partner at MMX Retail comments “Both Smiggle and The Body Shop are seeking to extend their representation in Northern Ireland and The Quays tenant mix is ideally suited to both clients. The extension to the scheme, with full range M&S and Next stores will enhance the catchment area for Newry.”
