Nandos confirmed for Yate Riverside and demand hots up for vacant YSC units

Date Posted:22/09/2015

The demand for shops in Yate is as strong as ever with four retailers expressing keen interest in taking space in the Shopping Centre's North Walk.

This comes at the same time as it is confirmed that Nandos has committed to taking a retail unit in the new cinema-led Yate Riverside scheme and two of the new retail units - Next and Pets at Home - have been handed over by contractors ISG to the tenants for fit-out

Centre Manager, Andrew Lowrey, said: "There is no doubt that the new Yate Riverside scheme has sparked interest in what the town has to offer. Over the past couple of years, we have seen a lot of interest in the main Shopping Centre on the back of the marketing for the cinema scheme.

“Recently, it was announced that Starbucks is taking the old Burton’s unit and now there are four retailers vying for space in North Walk.

“This is good for the town as it demonstrates that Crestbridge’s investment over the past few years - over £40 million since they bought the Centre in 2006 - is paying off. Yate is scheduled to have 2,500 new houses in due course and the Shopping Centre will be well placed to meet the additional shopping demand, preventing residents having to drive further afield and, importantly, creating local jobs.”

Next and Pets at Home have started the internal fit-out of two of the retail units at Yate Riverside with the former scheduled to open late October/early November and Next early December.

Nandos will be joining Prezzos, Dean’s Diner, and Frankie & Benny’s in the restaurant line-up adjacent to the Cineworld six-screen. Pets At Home are scheduled to open on the 30th October, Frankie & Benny's 16th November and Next, Nandos and Prezzo early December.
