The Dolphin Shopping Centre’s newest retailer, JD, has opened its doors to customers.
JD is the UK’s leading trainer and sports fashion retailer and has taken a 6,120 sq. ft. unit in the shopping centre.
John Grinnell, centre manager at the Dolphin Shopping Centre, said: “Further to the announcement that H&M will be opening in the New Year, it’s an exciting time for retailers to join the line-up. We’ve received great feedback from customers shopping in JD already – it’s especially popular with our younger shoppers.”
Legal & General recently reached an agreement with the Borough of Poole in June to restructure the existing headlease arrangements into a single, longer lease unlocking a £26 million programme of investment. The improvement programme will focus on an internal mall refresh, improvements to the open-air Falkland Square and Kingland Crescent – including work to the public realm and eye-catching shop facades, in addition to a redevelopment of the former Argos building to create a new nine-screen Empire cinema with four restaurants.
John Grinnell continued: “Attracting top brands to the centre is really important to secure its position as a significant attraction on the south coast for tourists and residents alike. Combined with the improvement works, we’re determined to significantly improve the facilities to appeal to all our customers.”
