Two new clients have agreed to take space at Old George Mall in Salisbury, including a well-known fashion retailer.

H&M is to open a newly-created anchor store of 16,686 sq ft over two trading floors. An agreement for a lease is in place which would allow work to begin in May 2013 to merger together four currently separate units into one.

H&M has signed a 15-year lease with a break at seven years for the new store, which is set to open in autumn 2013.

Café Rouge has also signed a new 15-year lease to open a 3,500 sq ft restaurant in the centre in spring 2013.

The centre is owned by Orchard Street Investment Management.

Andrew Jenkins, asset manager at Orchard Street, said: “The two lettings are a great endorsement of Salisbury’s trading potential and further strengthen Old George Mall as the city’s retailing heart.

“We are delighted to have secured H&M, one of the most recognisable brands in today’s high street fashion market and believe they will bring a new dimension to the scheme.

“Their opening in autumn 2013 is keenly anticipated. Café Rouge will bring a quality day time focussed restaurant offer which will strengthen and diversify the current retailer line up, add to dwell time and improve the public realm of the High Street/Old George Mall.”
