Bershka signs for exclusive Welsh store at St David's
19 September 2018
The St David’s Partnership, owners of St David’s in Cardiff, one of the UK’s premier retail and leisure destinations, has today revealed that international fashion label, Bershka, has selected St David’s for a new 11,190 sq ft store, a first for the brand in Wales.
Bershka will be located on Upper Grand Arcade, adjacent to the regional flagship H&M and will join the new Stradivarius store that opened in April. Established in 1998, Bershka has grown into a multinational brand with 1000 stores in over 70 markets around the world, and an online store stocking the latest trends in clothing, footwear and accessories for men and women. The store is set to launch soon at St David’s.
Speaking on behalf of the St David’s Partnership, a joint venture between Landsec and intu, Colin Flinn, regional managing director - west, commented on the addition: “The status of St David’s as the region’s leading fashion destination is further enhanced by the signing of international brand Bershka. Upper Grand Arcade continues to attract leading names in fashion and we look forward to welcoming Bershka into a trend-setting space with which the brand is synonymous.”
This follows the recent opening of international watch brand Daniel Wellington who opened their first UK store outside of London at St David’s. The new 430 sq ft regional icon store stocks the brand’s range of classic and elegant time-pieces. This summer, global luxury automobile brand, Mercedes-Benz, returned to the centre to launch a seasonal pop-up.
