Four Fresh brands boost thriving Dalton Park

Dalton Park Outlet Shopping destination in County Durham has built upon its remarkable return to buoyant trading with four new deals this September.

The lettings include a new store opening for Molton Brown which will complement the prestigious line-up of existing cosmetics, beauty and homeware brands and the international coffee chain Costa Coffee. Complete with central, outdoor seating area, the 1,650 sq ft unit will significantly boost the thriving café culture within the scheme.

Caroline Midgley, Acquisition Manager at Costa said: “We are delighted to be bringing a new Costa Coffee to Dalton Park, the destination has developed a really strong line up of brands and it has been on our target list for quite a while. With Morrisons now opening in a few month’s time it is great to be playing our part in creating new jobs and a community hub for the area.”

Lifestyle brands flourish at Dalton Park since the acquisition of brands such as Fat Face, White Stuff and Weird Fish now being joined by Lazy Jacks. The Devon-based colourful clothing brand will be opening a 1,193 sq ft store selling their casual, outdoor and performance wear for all the family. A further change comes in the form of Cotton Traders who will relocate to a 1,545 sq ft store.

Centre Manager, Jerry Hatch commented: “Consumer confidence bounced back incredibly quickly at our destination so it is fantastic to see that sentiment reflected in the commitment from our new occupiers. To have secured a brand like Molton Brown, who are taking a 1,500 sq ft unit next to strong performer Cosmetics Company Store, is a great endorsement in our investment in Dalton Park and proof that there is a demand for premium brands in County Durham.”

Jerry added “I am just delighted at exactly how resilient Dalton Park has proven to be. From the minute we re-opened with our social distancing measures in place we have manged to preserve the sense of wellbeing and relaxed ambience our shoppers have come to enjoy and with footfall and sales now exceeding last year’s levels these four new additions will propel our impressive growth even further.”
