Victoria Leeds is set to be home to five new stores over the coming months, spanning from fashion, eyewear and premium alcohol.
Whistles opens a brand new store this week on Wednesday 28 June 2023 inside the Victoria Quarter, spread across 1102 square foot. The London-based style is moving into Leeds to bring ‘ a curated edit of must-have pieces for Spring-Summer 23 and a selection of modern occasionwear.’
Phase Eight is also coming to Leeds as one of fourteen openings the brand is rolling out in 2023. The new store will be modelled on the Westfield London location, based on a flagship store and promises to include a large collection of event wear, daywear and its luxury tie collection.
Townhouse Nails is a luxury salon that’s ‘built a stellar reputation with its beautiful surroundings, daring nail creations and a flawless finish guarantee’ expanding through the north. The new store will be located next to Hackett.
Jimmy Fairly prides itself on being ‘the coolest optician in town’ and is set to add Leeds to its list in the coming months. Born out of one of London’s trendiest suburbs, the brand will bring a unique style of French eyewear to the Victoria Quarter.
The Whisky Shop is also setting up shop with Victoria Leeds and will open a new store inside the County Arcade. Inside you’ll find some of the world’s finest whiskies incuding rare and limited edition bottles like The Glenlivet 80-Year-Old Generations Gordon & MacPhail.
And whilst Size? isn’t a new opening, the popular footwear brand has seriously upscaled in moving stores to Kind Edward Street. The new home for the company is four-times the size of their previous store, spread across three floors.
Jo Coburn, Senior General Manager at Victoria Leeds, said:
“Retail is constantly evolving, and we are fast becoming the preferred destination not just for shopping, but leisure and lifestyle too. Having a dynamic sense of ‘now’ has never been more important. These new brands are a welcome addition to Victoria Leeds as our brand mix is key to ensuring that our beautiful destination is first on the bucket list when you’re visiting our fantastic city.
‘’It is our aim to create engaging, relevant experiences and events around this mix, that build anticipation and engagement with our customers and ultimately a true sense of belonging to the Victoria Leeds community. From Fashion Weekenders and immersive activations to large-scale artistry and involvement in cultural city trails. We work in collaboration with all our city partners to make Victoria Leeds one of the most inspiring places to visit when you’re in the city centre.”
