Located in prime retail pitches on the ground floor of Cabot Circus, the new & Other Stories and Bershka stores of12,682 sq ft and 8,416 sq ft respectively will cater for demand from youthful style-conscious shoppers, offering a range of clothing and accessories in eye-catching double-height shops, designed to engage and appeal to their target consumer demographic.

Scheduled to open later this year, these new stores will further enhance their parent companies’ footprints at Cabot Circus. Bershka, opening in winter, will complement the existing Inditex portfolio of Zara and Pull & Bear stores in the centre, while & Other Stories, opening in autumn, join eponymous brand as well as Cos and Monki.

The lease agreements follow recent news elsewhere in Bristol’s Shopping Quarter, with Hammerson announcing earlier this month that Metro Bank and TK Maxx are both taking space in Broadmead.

Ian Mitchell, UK Commercial Director at Hammerson commented, “As one of the UK’s major retail hubs, we are pleased to see appetite from major retail groups to take further space at Cabot Circus. We look forward to welcoming shoppers to these new stores, which look set to deliver an exciting and compelling store experience.

“Providing a varied and high quality fashion offer for our shoppers is key to ensuring Cabot Circus remains the region’s leading retail and leisure destination.”

Sanna Lindberg, Managing Director, & Other Stories commented, “We’re very happy to grow our UK presence even further. We can’t wait to meet our Bristol customers and show them all of our latest treasures.”
