Trio of retailers launch at Caledonia Park

RPMI Railpen has officially welcomed three leading fashion and lifestyle retailers, Levi’s®, GAP and Neon Sheep, to Caledonia Park, which has recently unveiled its new vision as Scotland’s premier designer village.

Taking 2,766 sq ft, Levi’s® has launched at the destination’s fashion-focused South Mall, stocking its coveted clothing and denim collections, and iconic products such as the iconic original 501® jeans. In keeping with the global brand’s heritage of craftsmanship, the new store at Caledonia Park also offers free alterations to Levi’s® jeans.   

Richard Hurren, VP Europe North at Levi’s®, commented: “Caledonia Park’s unique location, and commitment to an elevated shopping experience, make it an exciting addition to our outlet portfolio. We are pleased to form part of this designer brand destination and offer the broad catchment our iconic apparel collections and customisation services.”

American clothing and accessories retailer GAP has relocated and refitted as part of the revitalisation plans to a 5,913 sq ft unit, adjacent to the forthcoming Dining Quarter. In its new home, the brand continues to offer fashion-lovers its classic, comfortable, modern and accessible casual wear.

Adding to the destination’s lifestyle offering, Neon Sheep has selected Caledonia Park for a new 1,504 sq ft site. The store has been designed by an in-house team and stocks the brand’s full range of novelty products including gifts, stationary, accessories and homeware.

The trio of openings follows the recent announcement of Railpen’s major investment programme at the destination, formerly known as Gretna Gateway Outlet Village, including comprehensive architecture refurbishments, and refreshed landscaping inspired by the natural South Scottish surroundings.

Matthew Howard, Head of Property Asset Management at Railpen, added: “This wave of new openings is a meaningful endorsement for the recently unveiled Caledonia Park vision, which we will be bringing to life over the next 12 months.  Each of the brands complement our existing world-class anchors, and we are confident this news will create even more momentum amongst retailers of the same calibre.”

The three new stores join the destination’s premium fashion and lifestyle retailer line-up, which includes Polo Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, and Nike.

Boasting excellent connectivity to key motorways, and accessible to a significant catchment, Caledonia Park is a regional hub that outperforms national and regional benchmarks, with year-on-year sales growth for the last six successive quarters. Railpen’s investment programme at Caledonia Park is due for completion in autumn 2020.
