Kamigata has announced that they are opening an Aveda beauty salon in St David’s Cardiff, opposite John Lewis, which will take the new shopping centre to over 90 stores. Hot on their heels will be jeweller Pandora with a new store due to open during the summer.
Twenty-million shoppers have visited the new shops at St David’s since its October 2009 opening; a 70% year on year rise for the expanded centre.
T&E Ferris will open the first stand alone shop in Wales for jewellery wholesaler Pandora, with a 1,097 sq ft store. Kamigata will open a 2,518 sq ft salon and spa offering exclusive Aveda products and treatments, alongside other shops including Hugo Boss, the newly opened Hollister and the UK’s second largest John Lewis.
Joanne Skilton, of Capital Shopping Centres (CSC), on behalf of St David’s Partnership, the joint venture between CSC and Land Securities, said: “Pandora and Kamigata further enhance St David’s quality retail mix. The recent opening of Hollister was one of the most successful opening days ever for the brand and we are delighted that the centre is attracting more and more shoppers to Cardiff. We will be announcing more new names in the next few weeks – it’s a very exciting time”
