Story taken from Yate & Sodbury Gazette 18th March 2016
CLOTHING and homeware chain TK Maxx is expected to open a store in Yate this summer, the Gazette can exclusively reveal.
The firm is believed to be taking over the third and final retail unit in the new Yate Riverside development, an extension to Yate Shopping Centre on Link Road where a cinema is opening next month.
TK Maxx sells women’s, men’s and children’s fashion as well as bedding, home décor and giftware.
The American-owned firm has been named on a planning application for new signs and minor exterior alterations submitted to South Gloucestershire Council this week.
The planning statement, put forward by Yate Shopping Centre owners Crestbridge Corporate Trustees, said: “The unit is not yet occupied but the proposed amendments are a direct response to the requirements of the proposed occupier TK Maxx and it is hoped will be able to commence trading at this location in the summer of 2016.”
It added: “TKMaxx is a leading national retailer and has a desirable retail offer that attracts shoppers and as such will be of benefit to the overall retail offer in Yate to attract people in to the centre.
“Crestbridge will deliver the unit ready for occupation by the retailer however the details required by TK Maxx such as signage and plant are the responsibility of the occupying retailer.”
Next and Pets at Home opened stores at Yate Riverside at the end of last year and restaurant chains Nando’s, Frankie and Benny’s and Prezzo are also open. A six-screen Cineworld is due to open on April 29.
