Tous to open first UK store on Regent Street

By Ben Cooper

Spanish jewellery and accessories retailer Tous is to make its UK debut on London’s Regent Street in October.

Tous – which boasts global fashion icon Kylie Minogue as the face of its 2008 International ad campaign – will open in the former Principles store on Regent
Street near Oxford Circus.

The retailer will also open a store at the Westfield London scheme at White City and is
understood to be considering a concession in Selfridges’ Oxford Street store.

Tous is one of several Spanish retailers to open on Regent Street in the past year, including Desigual and Hoss Intropia.

The retailer, which was advised by property agent CB Richard Ellis, has ambitious plans for the UK. It wants 20 to 30 stores over the next three years, initially in central London,
but then moving to other key UK cities such as Manchester and Liverpool.


The retailer is taking on the accessories and jewellery offers of retailers such as Jigsaw and Italian brand Furlow, which have similar price points.

Tous was founded in 1920 and began its international expansion in the early 1990s. It now has a portfolio of more than 350 stores in 36 countries.

I can't seem to find that article on that site, but it's good news nonetheless. Since Frogmore took over, Belle Vale has really improved, with a fully re-furbished interior making it a more pleasant place to shop. It has also started to attract more high profile tenants including Argos, which is another plus. With continued investment such as the new extension, and a few more new tenants, I can see Belle Vale becoming South Liverpool's answer to Bootle Strand (if it isn't already).

That's what I thought at first (and hoped after eating there in Oz), but this article in the DP suggests something else


Urban Splash secure design firm for Ropewalks
Jul 23 2008 by Tony McDonough, Liverpool Daily Post

URBAN Splash has secured another tenant at the Ropewalks, in the centre of Liverpool.

Interior design specialist MYO Group has taken a 1,600 sq ft unit within the Tea Factory. The company, which was set up in March this year, specialises in interior design for high net worth individuals and businesses.

Its founder, Phil May, said: “Urban Splash has really helped me and my team as we establish our-selves in the Liverpool market. The calibre of our services and clientele meant the offices had to reflect our sense of style, something that the Tea Factory undeniably has.”

That makes more sense.

Any new eatery would surely be looking to be close to the CBD or a part of Liverpool 1. Pret's new shops for example.

Must admit it did seem rather a strange choice of location, but it was listed as a retail tennant, not commercial, so I assumed it must have been them. Gutted!

More stores for Belle Vale

Jul 23 2008 by Tony McDonough, Liverpool Daily Post

ACTING on behalf of Frogmore Real Estate Partners, DTZ and Jones Lang LaSalle have completed two more retail lettings at Belle Vale shopping centre, in Liverpool.

New Look, the fashion clothing and accessories chain, has signed up to take 7,642sq ft of a new 15,500sq ft extension. A 10- year term has been agreed, and New Look is due to open early next year after completion of development works.

International food retailer Subway has taken a 10-year lease on 710sq ft of accommodation at a rent equivalent to £13,000 per annum.

Belle Vale shopping centre is six miles south-east of Liverpool city centre.

Occupiers include Wilkinson, Woolworths, Peacocks, Game Station, Boots and Argos.

The centre has had a significant refurbishment, providing a clean and friendly shopping environment.

Another Subway. I'm a bit mixed on that. It's good news for Belle Vale, as it's another high profile name being attracted to the centre. However we already have ~20 Subways just in Liverpool (nearly double that in Merseyside) so do we really need another?

Subway are taking over now. They're getting worse than Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero.

Apparently Subway want 2010 UK & Ireland stores by 2010. They currently operate 1283 stores, meaning they need another 727 (or 726 if you count the Belle Vale outlet), in the next two years to meet their target. In view of that level of expansion, I don't suppose we should be too surprised to see a few more pop up. What I am actually somewhat surprised about, is that Liverpool One hasn't tempted them.....yet.

Also further news reports suggest Boots will be taking Barrots and Ann Summers to create its new 'superstore'.

Urban Outfitters are currently holding interviews
If this means that Boots expand their other store only within the footprint of Clayton Sq (theres plenty of room on the upper floors which was previously occupied by Asda George and the pub)...then I think this is a good thing. I am not a fan of plans to narrow the road between St Johns and Clayton Sqaure when there is plenty of potential to remodel and expand within the shopping centre.

I believe one of the reasons given for the Clayton Square expansion was so Boots could operate their store from a single trading floor. I don't think it was necessarily so they could expand the store in terms of stock carried, by any great degree. As such, unless they have had a major change of heart, I don't think the availability of the George unit will have affected their plans. That said, it still could work out well for the centre, as if Boots current upstairs trading area was combined with the George unit, it could create a decent sized unit, which may attract a larger tenant than perhaps the centre could currently accommodate.

Cheers Chris - still not convinced of it though; not that great an advantage from a single trading level IMO. I think Land Securities would be better putting the money towards the cost of their plans to smarten up the centre rather than expanding it..its become a cluttered shabby mess!
