Yate Riverside opening dates
Many of the new retail and restaurant units at Yate Riverside will be opening their doors to the public for the first time over the next few weeks following in the footsteps of Pets at Home which opened three weeks ago.
This growth coincides with extended interest in many of the vacant units in the existing Centre which could see occupancy rise to a post-recession high with vacancy rates (7%) falling to half of the national average.
Andrew Lowrey, Manager of Yate Shopping Centre, sees this as a major step in the evolution of the Shopping Centre as it consolidates its standing in South Gloucestershire's retail hierarchy and prepares for the future growth of the town: "The cinema and restaurants bring a new dimension to the Centre's offer. It has always been the owner's and Town Council's aim to develop a sustainable nighttime economy and with these new units, the town is well prepared for the future arrival of nearly 3,000 new homes."
The key dates for the openings over the next few weeks are:
Prezzo - 26th November
Frankie & Benny's - 1st December
Next - 10th December
Nandos - 16th December
Deans Diner - 25th April 2016
Cineworld - May 2016
Andy Lowrey continued: "Also this week we have seen Starbucks open in the former Burton's unit which has been vacant for over three years, a temporary Christmas shop (What Stores Christmas Wonderland) open in the former Entertainer unit and have entered into legal negotiations with two potential operators for units in North Walk.
"There is no doubt that the cinema, restaurants and retail units have acted as a magnet in attracting other interests!"
