Hat-trick of deals at Metrocentre’s Green Mall

Asset manager Sovereign Centros from CBRE has announced a trio of deals, with kitchenware firm ProCook, footwear retailer Clarks, and lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret set to make moves.

ProCook will open a 3,326 sq ft space in Metrocentre’s Lower Green Mall later this year. The kitchenware brand will stock a wide range of high-quality cookware, knives, tableware, and smaller kitchen appliances, with a choice of over 1,400 products on offer.

Metrocentre’s Green Mall, anchored by M&S, is also set to welcome a new store for the UK’s largest shoe retailer, Clarks. It will open a new 3,619 sq ft unit next month opposite Boots and offering the brand’s ‘modern workshop’ format.

Clarks said it will accommodate in-store activations, events, and services for a multi-faceted brand experience.

Rounding off the three is Victoria’s Secret, which like Clarks is moving from the Red Mall. The lingerie business will relocate into a 5,411 sq ft space later this summer adjacent to Next.

Ben Cox, director at Sovereign Centros from CBRE, said: “The investment in Green Mall, by new and established tenants, highlights its growing appeal among some of the most popular retailers in the UK.

“The creation of these new stores also reinforces our position as the leading destination in the North East, adding more diversity to what is already a best-in-class offer regionally. There’s so much happening at Metrocentre, and it has been fantastic to work with retailers that really believe in the destination, Green Mall, our visitor catchment, and the potential for success here.”

Global giant CBRE acquired retail-centric asset manager Sovereign Centros in November 2023.

Andy Kerr, retail director at ProCook, said: “We are excited to bring ProCook to Newcastle for the first time, attracting a brand-new audience. We look forward to bringing our incredible range of high quality, great value kitchenware to a destination where not only is there a demand, but a space for us to flourish within this iconic centre.”

This news follows the announcement that Metro Retail Park, the North East’s leading destination for homewares and furniture, is now fully let. Following investment to create three new units, the opening of NCF Living, the retailer specialising in sofas, dining, and beds, completed the leasing.
