Spanish owned retailer Grupo Cortifiel, will see one of the first UK stores for its well known fashion brand Springfield open at St David’s, Cardiff in mid October.

Brand Empire, Land Securities’ retail subsidiary, announced earlier this year that it would bring three of the Grupo Cortifiel brands to the UK – Cortifiel, Springfield and Woman’s Secret. One of the first locations for the Springfield brand will be a 3,026 sq ft store in Lower Grand Arcade at St David’s, Wales’ premier shopping centre. The brand will be well positioned amongst other fashion brands Cult, Quicksilver and Karen Millen.

Sanjay Sharma, CEO Brand Empire, said: “We are extremely excited to bring one of Europe’s most renowned and successful fashion brands, available in more the 47 countries around the world, to the UK.
We consider St David’s to be a key location for one of our first UK stores as it is an excellent centre in a top UK retail city – a perfect platform to showcase Springfield.”

Joanne Skilton, of Capital Shopping Centres (CSC), on behalf of St David’s Partnership, the joint venture between CSC and Land Securities, said: “The Springfield brand will greatly enhance the cosmopolitan fashion mix that we have created at St David’s, and as one of the brand’s first stores in the UK we are confident that the centre will deliver as an excellent retail location.”

Springfield, the contemporary men and woman’s fashion label will also open in Leeds, One New Change London, and Livingston Scotland. Locations for Grupo Cortifiel’s other brands, Cortifiel and Woman’s Secret, are still to be announced.
