Hotel Chocolat is opening a Brighton city centre store at Redevco’s newly redeveloped Hanningtons Estate. The retailer has taken 1,378 sq ft at 19 North Street, next to Oliver Bonas and Watches of Switzerland.
Peter Harris, Co-Founder and Development Director at Hotel Chocolat comments, “We are delighted to be bringing Hotel Chocolat to Brighton’s vibrant new cultural and retail quarter.
“We’re on a mission to make as many people happy as we can through good quality chocolate – made with more cocoa, less sugar. This latest addition forms part of our ever-growing portfolio across the UK, Japan and the USA.”
Oliver Bonas opened a 3,338 sq ft store at 18 North Street on 24th May, and Watches of Switzerland is fitting out a 3,798 sq ft store at 21-22 North Street, next to Habitat. Two more stores at Hanningtons Estate are also under offer to premium retailers.
Andrew Foulds, Portfolio Director at Redevco comments, “Hotel Chocolat is a fantastic premium brand, which will sit perfectly alongside existing tenants Habitat, Cath Kidston, Kurt Geiger, Sandro, Maje, Bobbi Brown and White Company. Our vision was to extend the premium retail offer already found in East Street and create something really special and unique in Hanningtons Lane.
“The response from local people and businesses to the new Lane, and the improvements we have made to stores on North Street, has been fantastic. It is all coming together and we are very happy with the line up so far.”
