Footasylum to Upsize and Relocate at Metrocentre

Sovereign Centros from CBRE has announced that leading streetwear retailer, Footasylum, is upsizing at top five super regional mall, Metrocentre.

Footasylum is set to increase its presence by 25 per cent, taking a 12,375sq ft unit enabling it to stock a larger range of streetwear, sportswear and footwear for men, women and kids. This relocation and notable upsizing of the store means they will continue to form an important retail element of Metrocentre’s Lower Red Mall, alongside other national favourite fashion brands such as Flannels, Zara and River Island.

The upsize of Footasylum comes at an exciting time, with other major brands choosing to further invest in the location. This includes international eyewear retailer Sunglass Hut, which has signed to open a 2,457sq ft unit at the destination on Lower Red Mall, after initially operating from a kiosk. Menswear brand Jack & Jones has also recently relocated into a 1,733sq ft store on upper Red Mall, demonstrating further commitment to the destination.

Ben Cox, Director at Sovereign Centros from CBRE, commented: “Last year 17 of our tenants upsized or invested in existing stores and this year we already have EE, Primark, Clarks, Victoria’s Secret and now Footasylum and Jack & Jones on that list. Recent leasing activity shines a light on how Metrocentre continues to be a location that is highly sought after, with major brands choosing to invest here. Footasylum is the latest in a long line of household name brands to commit to a new flagship store at Metrocentre, joining some exciting new entrants to Red Mall.”
