20th September 2023
Sovereign Centros, the asset manager of Willow Place and Corby Town Centre, has signed up Europe’s largest footwear retailer Deichmann for a new store in the town.

Deichmann has signed a new 10-year lease for a 7,000 sq ft unit at 13/15 Willow Place and is due to open on 27 September.

Simon Wilson, Director at Deichmann said: “We are extremely happy to be opening a new store in Corby. The Willow Place unit is a great addition to our store portfolio and we look forward to showcasing our extensive footwear range to Corby’s locals.“

Now in its 110th year of trading, the German-based retailer is one of Europe’s leading footwear brands, with over 4,600 branches worldwide in 31 countries and employing over 48,000 people. The company sells footwear for all occasions as well as fashion accessories, handbags and other leather goods.

Tom Nuttall, Asset Manager at Sovereign Centros commented: ” We are excited to welcome Deichmann to their new store in Willow Place which is in close proximity to their UK distribution centre. Corby town centre retail continues to perform strongly and the latest influx of new tenants and relocations is testament to this. The new 14,000 sq ft TJ Hughes store which opened earlier in the year is proving a real hit with customers and we are currently in advanced discussions with another eight prospective occupiers for various other locations throughout the centre.”

The new signing has come at a busy time for the centre, with new entrants welcomed alongside TJ Hughes including Fireaway Pizza, Euro Havana and independent hairdressers The Cut Lab.

Savills and Wright Silverwood are letting agents and Deichmann was advised by Barker Proudlove.
