Hart Shopping Centre secures M&Co letting

Hart Shopping Centre in Fleet has agreed a 10-year lease with fashion retailer M&Co. Fawcett Mead acted on behalf of the private landlord to secure the 10,000 sq ft letting which will see M&Co open a new department store at the Hampshire mall.

The letting will further boost the tenant line up at Fleet’s flagship shopping centre which opened in 1991. The Hart Shopping Centre, asset managed by Reith Lambert, lies at the heart of the town centre, just 3.4 miles from junction 4a of the M3 and is anchored by a 30,000 sq ft Waitrose supermarket. M&Co will join an array of other national multiples including WH Smith, Argos, Boots, The Works and Clarks.

Fawcett Mead’s Vincent Morris said: “This deal underlines the appeal of the Hart Shopping Centre and reinforces its position as Fleet’s premier retail destination. M&Co is a fantastic addition to the offer. The new department store will help pull in more shoppers, boost footfall and generate even more retailer demand for the centre’s remaining units.”
