Topshop and Topman are among eight retailers to have signed new leases for stores at Glasgow’s St Enoch Centre.

The Arcadia-owned brands are already at the centre but will double their square footage with a relocation to a new 30,000 sq ft flagship store.

Mothercare, Poundworld, Card Factory, Yankee Candle and Aftershock are to open new stores at the centre while Burtons, Dorothy Perkins, JD Sports, WH Smith and HMV had all extended their leases.

Paul Bailey, leasing and asset manager at St Enoch owner Sovereign Land, said: “We are also in discussions with a number of existing retailers, who wish to extend their leases in advance of their expiry and we are also experiencing a significant uplift in interest from food & beverage and leisure operators, both for the existing centre, and for the centre’s longer term redevelopment proposals, to further enhance the overall offer and increase dwell time.”

At 830,000 sq ft, St Enoch Centre is the largest shopping centre in Glasgow and attracts nearly 20 million visitors a year. Other retailers at the shopping centre include Debenhams, H&M, Superdry and Boots.
