Women’s fashion brand, Seasalt Cornwall, is the first national clothing retailer to announce that it will be opening at Bell Court in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Inspired by the artistic and maritime heritage of Cornwall, Seasalt offers a range of womenswear and outerwear, alongside accessories, footwear and gifts. The shop is due to open in early 2018.
John Stacey, Asset Management Director at UK & European Investments, the owners of Bell Court, said: “With its stylish range of clothing and accessories, Seasalt will prove to be a huge draw for people visiting Bell Court. The development is already becoming a key leisure destination in Stratford and having high quality retailers such as Seasalt open will further bolster Bell Court’s popularity with both local residents and tourists.
“This is the first of a number of national shops that will be opening at Bell Court and we’re hoping to announce further businesses that will be joining Seasalt in the coming months.”
A family-run company and established in 1981, Seasalt now has 45 shops located across the UK. The Seasalt team designs their ranges from their studio right beside the sea in Falmouth, Cornwall, giving a truly authentic feel of coastal living.
Neil Chadwick, one of the owners of Seasalt, said: “We’re very much looking forward to bringing Seasalt to Stratford-upon-Avon. We have a real passion for creating beautiful clothing that is both practical and stylish. Stratford has such charisma and beautiful architecture and we’ve already had such a warm welcome.
“Bell Court is a brilliant location for our first shop in the town. It has a great, relaxing atmosphere which suits our brand perfectly.”
Seasalt will have a position overlooking the new public square at Bell Court, opposite Nando’s.
Seasalt will join other national retailers at Bell Court including Debenhams and Lush, as well as independent businesses including Bardia’s, The Naildressers and The Browstudio.
Bell Court has undergone an 18 month refurbishment to become a high quality retail and leisure destination within Stratford’s town centre. In addition to new shops, restaurants and leisure facilities, Bell Court has delivered new public realm, including a central square with wooden seating, landscaping and feature lighting, as well as a living wall and new art installations.
