The independent department store will open their second store in Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade.

Owned by developer Dransfield Properties, the first Sandersons store opened in 2016 in Fox Valley. The new store will occupy a space of 8500sq ft, and will take over a former New Look unit in the shopping centre.

The store is expected to stock a number of womenswear brands including Barbour, Max Mara, Holland Cooper and Tommy Hilfiger, and menswear brands such as Armani Exchange, Levi’s and Jacob Cohen.

Mark Dransfield, Managing Director, commented: “We are confident that the range of brands we have in the store will fit well in the town and will complement the great retail line-up we have here in Morpeth. We’re finding that people are looking to shop more locally just now, which is good news for market towns such as Morpeth. This is a great time to bring the Sanderson’s range of brands to the town.”
