LULULEMON TO OPEN AT TUNSGATE QUARTER GUILDFORD
• Queensberry adds lululemon to the exciting line-up
• OKA, Loaf and The Ivy are due to start fitting out in the coming weeks
Tunsgate Quarter, the new 80,000 sq ft retail and restaurant development in the heart of Guildford town centre, has signed lululemon to further strengthen the appeal of the new eye-catching shopping destination.
lululemon joins the existing line-up which includes Loaf, OKA, The White Company, Cath Kidston, Bobbi Brown and The Ivy Collection who will start fitting-out in the coming weeks.
lululemon is a women’s and men’s technical athletic apparel company, founded in Vancouver, Canada in 1998. As the brand defining an active, mindful lifestyle, lululemon is focused on creating design-led products that empower people to live a life they love. Designed for and with athletes, products blend function and fashion, using innovative, high-performance fabrics to support yoga, running, training and most other sweaty pursuits.
Founded on a community-led model, lululemon builds authentic relationships with guests through its stores and network of local ambassadors, creating holistic experiences which transcend its products. The new 1,815 sq ft store will be a space for the local community to shop, stretch and sweat; transforming into a studio space each week, guests will be invited to join complimentary yoga and fitness classes led by local trainers.
Chris Daly, Senior Leasing Manager at Queensberry, said: “This latest announcement demonstrates the consistent quality of the exciting line-up we’re creating at Tunsgate Quarter. lululemon is very much in line with the unique retail and leisure destination we’re creating in Guildford. The community is at the heart of this scheme and we know lululemon will appeal to Guildford’s local and wider catchment.”
When complete, the new-look Tunsgate Quarter will feature 18 shops and eight restaurants. Queensberry’s vision is to create an expanded leisure hub, embracing independent retailers adjacent to the scheme, as well as adding to the choice from the High Street and offer spectacular views across Guildford Castle and gardens. The scheme will have a striking new atrium at its heart.
Lyons + Sleeman + Hoare is the architects for Tunsgate Quarter, and the agents are Bruce Gillingham Pollard and Cushman & Wakefield. ISG PLC is the contractor for the scheme.
