Scotts to open at St David's Cardiff

Press release

Young menswear brand Scotts is opening its first store in Wales at St David’s shopping centre, Cardiff later this month. The retailer has signed a 10 year lease for a 1,965 sq ft unit with 2,042 sq ft ancillary storage at 32 Town Wall.

Scotts specialises in young men’s clothing and footwear, including brands such as Fred Perry, Adidas, Pretty Green, Nike and Lacoste. Scotts was acquired by JD Sports Fashion plc in 2004 and the group also opened a size? store at St David’s last year. 

Julian Wilkinson, regional director of intu commented on behalf of the St David’s Partnership, a joint venture between intu and Land Securities, “Scotts will appeal to the fashion savvy St David’s shopper and we are delighted to accommodate both size? and Scotts within the centre.”

St David’s shopping centre provides over 1.4 million sq ft of retail and leisure space and over 180 stores. Since opening its doors in 2009, it has put Cardiff firmly on the map as one of the UK’s best shopping cities. 

St David’s has secured a continuous stream of high calibre retailer and restaurant openings over the past five years, including many brands that have made their debut or introduced new concept stores into Wales. 2014 saw the arrival of MAC Cosmetics, Primark, Beauty Studio by Superdrug, size? and Wahaca’s first restaurant outside the South East.

During peak times of the year, over one million customers visit the Welsh shopping capital each week, spending over £1 million daily.

St David’s Partnership was advised by Jones Lang LaSalle and Cushman & Wakefield. Scotts were self-represented.
