Card Factory moving to bigger unit in Barons Quay
23 January 2019Card Factory is the latest retailer to exchange contracts on a new unit in Barons Quay. Moving from their current location in Weaver Square they are set to open a new 2,004 sq ft store close to the new Sports Direct, also due to open in the next few months.
The UK’s leading specialist of greeting cards, gift dressings and party products is a welcome addition to Barons Quay, joining the growing number of retailers including ASDA, Odeon, Wildwood, H&M and more recently the Entertainer. Barons Quay is now operating at 62% capacity.
Card Factory representative said: “We are thrilled to be opening a new Card Factory store in Barons Quay shopping centre and look forward to sharing our fantastic range of cards, gifts, balloons and gift wrap with the shoppers of Northwich.”
Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Infrastructure, Councillor Brian Clarke said: “This is welcome news that the Card Factory is expanding their offer in the town centre, which I know our residents will be pleased to hear.
“Over recent months several new retailers have opened in Barons Quay and we’re in advanced talks with several more businesses so hope to have more great news for the town this year.”
Andrew Milner-Walker spokesperson for The Entertainer said: “Since opening on 15 November in Northwich we've been delighted with our sales results with The Entertainer store significantly outperforming targets. With so much negative press around the future of the high street it's fantastic to see such a positive reaction from our customers and we're really looking forward to welcoming new tenants to the area."
The Council recently consulted on plans to redevelop the Weaver Square area as part of the wider regeneration of Northwich town centre. Card Factory’s relocation will therefore help free up the site as well as providing a new tenant for Barons Quay.
