Major leisure fashion retailer Fat Face is opening a store in Spalding’s Springfields Shopping Outlet next month.

The lifestyle clothing and accessories shop will take over the unit currently occupied by Works, with the books and stationery shop moving into the empty unit that formerly housed Dragon Carp.

Our recent additions, added to names like Radley, Skechers, Gap and Marks and Spencer, are proving to be very successful with our relatively affluent and extensive catchment

Springfields beat off stiff competition from other top UK outlet centres to secure the prestigious retailer.

The news follows on from the recent investment in the Blue Diamond-run Home and Garden Centre and the letting to leading fashion retailer Next in February. And Springfields say that more big names are in the pipeline.

The Spalding store is due to open at the end of September and will be one of Fat Face’s largest outlet stores in the country.

Head of Springfields Ian Sanderson said: “This represents a significant part of the strategy in repositioning Springfields Outlet as a more affluent and top standard outlet centre.

“The centre has enjoyed 11 years of continued growth and this is now set to accelerate.

“Our recent additions added to names like Radley, Skechers, Gap and Marks and Spencer, are proving to be very successful with our relatively affluent and extensive catchment”.

The current Works store will remain open until its new store is ready next week.
