Broadway signs up latest large retailer ahead of November launch
17 Aug 2015
The Broadway has been announced its latest big-name retailer to sign up for the landmark retail development, fashion retailer Superdry.
The clothes giant is taking 10,700 sq ft over two floors in the Petergate Mall, with more than 80% of the floor space now occupied ahead of the November 5 opening.
Claire Arksey, head of UK retail at Superdry, described it as "a great location" for the brand, and it will join a host of other large retailers including Marks & Spencer, H&M, Debenhams, Next, Schuh and River Island at the Bradford development.
“Superdry is an excellent addition to The Broadway and one that is a further vote of confidence in both The Broadway and Bradford in general," said Keith Mabbett, director of leasing at Westfield. "It demonstrates that the UK’s big name retailers are increasingly keen to come to Bradford."
The Broadway development will create 2,500 retail jobs upon opening and it is expected to continue to deliver significant boosts to the city's economy and profile once it starts welcoming shoppers in three months' time.
