High Street brand to move from Quays to Gloucester City Centre

A leading women's clothing brand is moving from Gloucester Quays to the city's Eastgate Shopping centre. Meanwhile there is speculation that Adidas could be heading to the Quays.

Last month it was announced that the retailer Klass was leaving Gloucester Quays Outlet Centre in August.

Now Klass has told shoppers that it is opening a new store in Eastgate Shopping Centre opposite M&S on September 15.

A huge sign announcing the move has been plastered over the front of the Quays store saying the city centre shop will be "A bigger store with bigger savings."

Klass has 150 stores nationwide and is next door to Cotton Traders which is also quitting Gloucester Quays, prompting speculation that the two premises could be merged into one for a new retail business.

Speculation is rife that sportswear giant Adidas could be moving in - although nothing has been officially announced.

Last month Peel, which owns Gloucester Quays, put a positive spin on the recent store closures.

Matt Bird, Gloucester Quays centre manager said: "Gloucester Quays is a thriving retail and leisure destination with significant redevelopment and improvement plans for the future, which in time will see an enhanced premium offering for our shoppers to enjoy."

Today Cllr Paul James, Gloucester City Council leader, welcomed the new store opening at Eastgate Shopping Centre. He tweeted: "This proves the Quays and city centre can work well together."
