Final pieces fall in to place at Yate Riverside retail and leisure venue
The final pieces of the jigsaw are now falling into place at Yate Riverside as works start on preparing the T K Maxx store and Dean’s Diner opens its doors to the public in what are described as two more very significant offers at the Yate Riverside leisure scheme. The current two ground floor and one first floor units, which will form the T K Maxx store, are currently being amalgamated into a single unit totaling 22,000 square feet. These works are scheduled to be completed by late July when they will be handed over to the retailer for fit out with store opening scheduled for October. T K Maxx, which sells a range of men's and women's clothing, shoes, accessories & handbags, will complete the retail line-up at Yate Riverside, joining Pets at Home and Next at the new leisure complex, which is anchored by the Cineworld 6-screen multiplex which opened at the end of April.
Andy Lowrey, Centre Manager: “T K Maxx will bring a further wide selection of clothing offers to the Centre, something that was identified as a key requirement by local residents when the public consultation for the scheme was undertaken about two years ago. “It is the final piece in the jigsaw puzzle at Yate Riverside which now has the three key retailers in place. The restaurant line-up is now also complete with Dean’s Diner opening this week, joining Prezzo, Nando’s and Frankie & Benny’s, all of which support the new Cineworld cinema, to boost the town’s nighttime economy.
Dean’s Diner is a 60s American themed diner enhanced by a retro jukebox, offering a wide range of complementary dishes reneging from classic hamburgers and hotdogs to salads and tortilla wraps.
Andy Lowrey: “This development has been a long time in the making but now Yate has its own evening leisure venue, an aspiration that has taken over ten years to deliver. There are still a couple of holes to fill, such as the coffee pod and occupancy of an upper floor unit but these are progressing. “Similarly, there is activity on some of the vacant units in the main centre but these things all take time and hopefully we will be able to release news about more occupiers in the very near future.”.
