Vintage clothing retailer Beyond Retro is opening a new 6,000 sq ft store at Unit 4 The Hayes, opposite Cardiff’s St David’s shopping centre, on 23 August 2023, with “further deals in the pipeline for London and key UK cities” in the coming months.
The Cardiff opening marks Beyond Retro’s sixth permanent UK store, with three in London, one in Brighton and one in Bristol.
The retailer also has a long running pop-up store at London’s Coal Drops Yard, which was initially on a three-month tenancy agreement from October 2022 but is still going strong.
The new large space in Cardiff city centre, which was secured through strategic retail property advisors Newmark Retail, will house over 10,000 pieces of vintage clothing and accessories.
Beyond Retro Managing Director, Kate Peters, said: “We are delighted that Beyond Retro has expanded to the vibrant and creative city of Cardiff. The city’s spirit of independence and its record for recycling really aligns with the Beyond Retro ethos.
“The new location is the perfect spot for our large-scale sustainable fashion offering and Newmark Retail’s support has been vital in securing it.”
Director at Newmark Retail, Amanda O’Flaherty, added: “We have been working with Beyond Retro to establish a growth and expansion plan that will meet the brand’s objectives and appeal to shoppers looking for fantastic vintage finds.
“Cardiff is an ideal first location in our partnership and we are looking forward to working with the team as we move through its expansion plans together.”
