Rushmere also confirms top fashion stores DV8 and Vogue to open in time for Christmas
Visitor numbers to Rushmere Shopping Centre increased by a record 17 percent in October after popular global restaurant chains Five Guys and Nando’s were added to its growing retail and hospitality offer.
Rushmere said its new, extended dining offer and a strong retail mix had encouraged 17.4 percent more shoppers to visit compared with October last year and that many of those had also tended to stay longer, boosting evening footfall figures by 25 percent alone.
Five Guys and Nando’s opened in early October as part of a £2 million strategic investment by Rushmere to provide shoppers with a greater hospitality choice, creating more than 100 new jobs.
Rushmere also confirmed that UK and Ireland-wide fashion and footwear brand DV8, along with women’s fashion brand Vogue, will both be adding to the centre’s strong line-up in plenty of time for Christmas.
The new stores will create at least 30 new jobs, bringing the total number of people employed at the centre and retail park to more than 1,500.
