Tessuti opens first Welsh store

Oct 2, 2018

Shopping malls giant Hammerson has announced that designer retailer Tessuti has opened a new store at Cyfarthfa Retail Park in Merthyr Tydfil. It’s the 33-year-old business’s first store in the Welsh market.


The JD Sports-owned chain now has 38 stores across the UK and as well as being the first in Wales, the new location is the first time it’s opened at a Hammerson property.

Tessuti’s curated selection of premium fashion brands includes womenswear labels such as Michael Kors, Vivienne Westwood and Calvin Klein as well as luxury menswear labels such as Boss, Stone Island, Ralph Lauren and Armani.

Cyfarthfa has been repositioned in recent years as “the premier fashion destination in the South Wales Valleys.” The new 5,000 sq ft store has taken space on the retail terrace between H&M and River Island.

Andrew Berger-North, Director of UK Retail Parks at Hammerson, said: “Retailers such as Tessuti opting to enter the Welsh market with us is reflective of the park’s growing strength, as shoppers continue to choose their favourite fashion brands in convenient consumer spaces.”

James Air, Group Acquisitions Manager for Tessuti added that the company has opened there because it’s a “strong” location that “provides a good mix of retail for the region and was identified early on as a target location for the continued expansion of Tessuti.”
