Cath Kidston sets its sights on Southampton


Cath Kidston, the home of modern vintage and famous for its bespoke floral prints and quirky style is to open its first store in Southampton at Hammerson’s WestQuay shopping centre.

The new 210m² (2,340ft²) store will offer the complete range of products from homeware and fashion, to accessories and childrenswear and will be located in a prime position on the lower mall next to Paperchase.

Sarah Mander, leasing executive for Hammerson commented: “Cath Kidston is an excellent addition to WestQuay and highlights the continued strength of the centre as the premier retail location in the region. This is the latest brand which adds to our line up of destination stores, ensuring we continue to attract the wider catchment to drive the centre’s sales success and popularity with shoppers.”

Commercial Director at Cath Kidston, Chris McKendrick added: “WestQuay offers a fantastic retail opportunity with a strong consumer catchment and our new store will help us to reach a new customer base.”

Cath Kidston is the latest retailer to open at WestQuay and follows the successful upsizing of Fat Face and recent signing Thomas Sabo, which opens later this summer.

DTZ acted on behalf of Hammerson and CBRE represented Cath Kidston.
