RPMI Railpen has officially welcomed three fashion and lifestyle retailers, Levi’s, Gap and Neon Sheep, to Caledonia Park – the recently rebranded Gretna Gateway Outlet Village in Gretna, Scotland.
Levi’s has taken a 2,765 sq ft store in the South Mall and will be offering free alterations to its jeans. Richard Hurren, VP Europe North at Levi’s, commented: “Caledonia Park’s unique location, and commitment to an elevated shopping experience, make it an exciting addition to our outlet portfolio.
“We are pleased to form part of this designer brand destination and offer the broad catchment our iconic apparel collections and customisation services.”
Gap has relocated and refitted as part of the revitalisation plans to a 5,900 sq ft unit, adjacent to the forthcoming ‘Dining Quarter’. Neon Sheep has taken a 1,500 sq ft unit, and the new store stocks the brand’s full range of novelty products, including gifts, stationary, accessories and homeware.
The trio of openings follows the recent announcement of Railpen’s major £7m investment programme at the destination, formerly known as Gretna Gateway Outlet Village – due for completion in autumn 2020 – including comprehensive architecture refurbishments, and refreshed landscaping inspired by the natural South Scottish surroundings.
Matthew Howard, head of property asset management at Railpen, added: “This wave of new openings is a meaningful endorsement for the recently unveiled Caledonia Park vision, which we will be bringing to life over the next 12 months. Each of the brands complement our existing world-class anchors, and we are confident this news will create even more momentum amongst retailers of the same calibre.”
The three new stores join the destination’s premium fashion and lifestyle retailer line-up, which includes Polo Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, and Nike.
