Beauty counters at Flannels Gateshead Metrocentre store

Flannels has opened a new luxury flagship store in the Metrocentre shopping centre in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, which promises to be “the UK’s leading destination for new luxury”.

The 50,000 sq ft flagship has been called “revolutionary” by the brand and aims to bring a “groundbreaking fashion and beauty experience to the North”.

As a continuation of the wider Frasers Group strategy, the opening of Flannels’ fourth flagship reflects the group’s continued “pioneering elevation of UK retail”.
