Flannels, Neal's Yard, Godiva, Tag Heuer and Nespresso have signed up to join the retail mix at Yorkshire's premier shopping destination following the arrival of Primark, Sports Direct, Wilko, Timberland and Schuh Kids at the mall earlier this year.

Luxury fashion retailer Flannels will open a 10,000 sq ft store on Meadowhall's prominent Park Lane mall in May, while organic natural health and beauty retailer Neal's Yardwill open a 700 sq ft store in the summer opposite Flannels.

Luxury Swiss watch manufacturer Tag Heuer is set to open its largest shop in the UK at the mall. Located next to Goldsmitsh, the shop will extend over 1,820 sq ft. Godiva and Nespresso complete the string of new deals.

“Our strategy is to ensure Meadowhall's offer reflects consumers' changing modern lifestyles. Attracting these premium brands to the line-up achieves this objective and is a great endorsement of the enhanced environment we and our occupiers are creating at the centre," said Richard Crowther, asset manager for British Land.

In addition to the new lettings, four premium brands including House of Fraser, AllSaints, Hollister and Hugo Boss will be refurbishing their stores at Meadowhall.
