We've been busy this year!
2023 has been a busy year for the centre as we’ve welcomed a range of fantastic new brands, including Vanilla, Moda in Pelle, Rowen Homes, Skopes, Apricot, VIP Nails and an additional store for The Fragrance Shop. Before the year is out, we will see over 200,000 sq ft of retail space open with brands investing over £40m in their Metrocentre stores:
The first big announcement is the much-anticipated reopening of ZARA at the end of the month – keep an eye on Metrocentre’s social channels for an announcement. The new store is almost three times the size of the former store and promises to be a huge footfall driver for the centre.
