Fashion retailer Jack Wills is to open a shop at Bluewater in what will be its first store in an out of town shopping centre.
All its 59 UK and Ireland stores are located on high streets, apart from its Liverpool shop, which is located in the in-town centre Metquarter.
The 3,487 sq ft shop will be located on Bluewater’s lower Guildhall and will open “in time for Christmas”, according to Lend Lease Retail, which manages Bluewater.
Guy Thomas, head of retail leasing at Lend Lease Retail, said: “Jack Wills is the latest in a series of premium retailers to select Bluewater to create a statement store that will bring its brand to life for Bluewater’s guests.”
Jack Wills also operates 15 shops in the US, four in the Middle East and three in Hong Kong.
