York Vangarde Shopping Park has announced two new lettings, which is says are part of a move to shift the park away from its traditional food and beverage offering and towards a diversified offering of leisure, retail and regional restaurant chains, in the wake of changing demand and difficult trading conditions.
Estabulo, a Brazilian Bar and Grill which has seven other restaurants in the North of England, and Specsavers have both commite to take space.
The landlord is represented by Miles Lawrence at Lawrence Hannah who said: “The food and drink market is moving away from national chains, and regional operators now represent by far the most exciting options for landlords. With this in mind, we were delighted to secure Estabulo who are well loved throughout the region and bring a whole new flavour to the scheme.”
Commenting on the news, James Woodard at Hartnell Taylor Cook said: “The project is at a really exciting stage. The adjoining stadium, leisure centre, cinema and bowling alley really pin down Vangarde as one of the city’s premier retail and leisure destinations, and we are able to now attract the most interesting national and regional operators from both retail and leisure when spaces become available, which keeps the scheme fresh.”
