Bonmarché among new stores to open in Newport

Aug 31, 2016

Five brands have just signed leases at Queensberry Real Estate's The Kingsway Centre in Newport, Wales, one of which is womenswear fashion and plus size retailer Bonmarché.


Bonmarché has signed up for a 4,725-sq ft store on a five year lease, and will be joined by Shoe Zone, the discount footwear retailer, which has signed a five year lease for a 3,250-sq ft unit. Starbucks and Newport Barbers, a local barber company, have also taken stores at the centre. Bodycare, which sells skin and beauty products, will be refurbishing its store at Kingsway, and has signed on for another five years.

Daniel Mead, senior asset manager, Queensberry Real Estate, commented: “We are experiencing a clear growth in Newport and the development of Friars Walk has been central to this. It is bucking the retail trend in this area of South Wales and has given a massive boost to the area, doubling the size of Newport’s catchment.”
