Fashion brand upsizes as department store closes doors
The Morgan Quarter has announced that plans are in place to extend international fashion brand Jack Wills’ existing flagship Cardiff store. The new configuration will see them trading over two floors and a 150 per cent increase in floor space. The new, larger Jack Wills store is due to open in September 2017.
This expansion has been facilitated by the announcement from independent department store, Rossiters of their plans to close their Cardiff store in April to concentrate on their core business in Bath. Peter James, managing director stated “We are very proud of the store which we think has provided the city with something a little bit different”.
A management spokesperson confirmed that the Rossiters store will be reconfigured to accommodate the new Jack Wills store. The reconfiguration will also see the creation of a second unit on the Royal Arcade which will be brought to market later this year.
A Morgan Quarter spokesperson commented: “The Morgan Quarter is a key destination for luxury and independent retail and whilst we are sad to see Rossiters leave these changes give us the opportunity to further expand the exciting line up of brands on offer to our customers alongside our other recent arrivals such as Jo Jo Maman Bebe. We are hugely excited by the Jack Wills expansion plans and look forward to seeing the new store later in the year.”
