Fatface invests and upsizes at St David's

The St David’s Partnership, owners of St David’s in Cardiff, has announced a newly refurbished and upsized store for international lifestyle clothing and accessories retailer, FatFace.

The FatFace store footprint has doubled in size with the installation of a brand-new mezzanine level for menswear. In addition, the brand’s investment includes a complete overhaul for signage, fitting rooms, and décor. Designed by consultancy Box of Frogs, the new concept, which is also being rolled out across the UK, presents a more contemporary feel for the brand.

Speaking on behalf of the St David’s Partnership, a joint venture between Landsec and intu, Colin Flinn, intu’s regional managing director - west, said: “With this brand-new mezzanine level, FatFace will continue to be a high performing brand, offering a broader range of everyday wear for even more of our visitors. The brand follows in the footsteps of other major retailers who have recently refurbished and invested in their St David’s stores, including ECCO and Watches of Switzerland. This fresh new look and the significant increase in space will enable FatFace to go from strength-to-strength in Cardiff.”

St David’s great reputation, coupled with its location within one of the UK’s principal cities, has always provided a consistent platform for positive trading
