Levi’s, Gap and Neon Sheep are the first retailers to commit to the newly rebranded Caledonia Park since it unveiled its new vision as Scotland’s premier designer village.

The outlet centre, previously known as Gretna Gateway, will undergo a significant facelift over the next 12 months. The project involves giving units a new timber facade, adding canopies and enhancing the public realm with landscaping inspired by the natural South Scottish surroundings.

Taking 2,766 sq ft, Levi’s has launched at the destination’s South Mall, stocking its clothing and denim collections and offering a free alterations service. Richard Hurren, VP Europe North at Levi’s hailed the outlet centre’s location and commitment to an elevated shopping experience. 

“We are pleased to form part of this designer brand destination and offer the broad catchment our iconic apparel collections and customisation services,” he said.

Gap has relocated and refitted its store, opening a 5,913 sq ft unit adjacent to the forthcoming Dining Quarter.

And lifestyle retailer Neon Sheep opened a 1,504 sq ft store with an interior designed by an in-house team. 

“This wave of new openings is a meaningful endorsement for the recently unveiled Caledonia Park vision, which we will be bringing to life over the next 12 months,” said Matthew Howard, head of property asset management at Railpen.

“Each of the brands complement our existing world-class anchors, and we are confident this news will create even more momentum amongst retailers of the same calibre.” 

The designer village currently houses premium fashion brands including Polo Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, and Nike.
