The store is due to open in Autumn 2022 and will be one of 83 Flying Tiger locations across the UK. Each month, the brand launches an array of new products, from gifts and gadgets to homeware and stationery.
The arrival of the Danish retailer follows a surge in letting activity at the city center scheme. Key brands, such as Debenhams.com and Tommy Hilfiger, plus leisure operator Urban Playground and F&B outlets including Kokoro, Doner Shack and Slim Chickens, have all selected the center because of its location and reputation.
Colin Flinn, spokesperson for Manchester Arndale, said:“Flying Tiger is expected to appeal to Manchester’s younger demographic, especially its many millions of students as well as those family visits to the center. We are looking forward to announcing further exciting new arrivals over the next few weeks as we continue to reinforce Manchester Arndale as an exciting destination for everybody”
Michael Burke, Managing Director of Flying Tiger Copenhagen UK and Ireland said: “We’re delighted to be opening a new store in Manchester Arndale. It will mark our next step in developing the UK and Ireland’s strategic store portfolio and expansion in the North of the UK. We look forward to welcoming our new customers very soon.”
