A GLOBAL gym brand and fashion retailer are set to open at a Glasgow shopping centre.
Princes Square in the heart of the city’s Buchanan Street will soon welcome two new stores, Sweaty Betty and James Lakeland.
A popular activewear label, Sweaty Betty will be moving from its existing store on Royal Exchange Square to the bigger store in Princes Square, opening on March 17.
The brand, which uses responsibly sourced and recycled materials for its gymwear, started as a small boutique in London in 1998 and is now famous for its ‘power leggings’.
There are currently around 150 Sweaty Betty stores and concessions across the world.
Mark Smith, COO of Sweaty Betty, said: “We’ve always loved Princes Square – it’s one of the best retail spaces in the city – and we wanted to find a bigger space with somewhere to host events.
“When we saw the courtyard space, it sealed the deal as it will allow us to create great experiences and events for our loyal following of Glasgow customers.”
James Lakeland founded his family-run label in 1992 with a vision to dress women of all ages and sizes.
The Princes Square store, opening soon, will be his third in Glasgow and will stock exclusive items.
Katie Moody, Princes Square centre director, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome these two new tenants to Princes Square. Sweaty Betty is a much-loved brand and a leader in its field, and we cannot wait for them to open their doors and hear what events they have planned in our courtyard.
“We’re delighted James Lakeland has chosen to open their third premises in the centre, it will be a great addition to our womenswear offering and will sit well alongside French Connection, Ted Baker, Reiss and Kate Spade.”
