Seasalt to open first Surrey store as it signs up for Tunsgate Quarter
Seasalt is set to open its first store in Surrey after signing up for a unit in the new Tunsgate Quarter centre in Guildford, which was opened six days ago.
The family-run, Cornwall-based clothing, homeware and accessories retailer, has signed up for a 1,370 sq ft unit joining the centre’s line-up of premium lifestyle brands, such as OKA and Loaf, which are also new to Guildford, and The White Company, which has doubled in size and moved to Tunsgate Quarter from its existing Guildford location. Other brands in the new line-up include Bobbi Brown, lululemon and Cath Kidston
Neil Chadwick, co-founder of Seasalt, said: “We're thrilled to be able to bring Seasalt to Guildford as we continue to expand our business. Tunsgate Quarter was too good an opportunity to ignore, as the centre offers a great mix of lifestyle brands and it’s set in a brilliant location. Guildford has great charisma and such a great catchment, so the destination was the obvious choice. We're looking forward to welcoming everyone to our new shop.”
Tunsgate Quarter opened to the public last week following an 18-month refurbishment programme to remodel and extend the centre. The refurbishment included the creation of two new levels to the rear of the scheme and has created a thoroughfare between the High Street and its surrounding roads.
Chris Daly, Senior Leasing Manager at Queensberry, said: “The opening event at Tunsgate Quarter last week was enormously successful with hugely positive feedback from both retailers and visitors to the centre across its first few days.”
As well as Seasalt the centre has also signed up casual dining outlet Cosy Club, which will open a 7,935 sq ft restaurant. Nespresso and Pho will also arrive later in the spring.
