Check out a regional centre with a difference. Open doors for your business with a high profile presence in our thriving city.

  • One of the UK’s Top Ten retail destinations
  • Retail catchment of over 3.8 million people
  • Join leading quality names such as Vivienne Westwood, Jo Malone, Hugo Boss and Paul Smith

Bursting with an eclectic mix of large shopping centres, quirky independent retailers and designer names, Nottingham’s diversity is the key to our retail success.

Currently redeveloping our two large shopping centres, the time is ripe for new names to establish a presence, joining a vanguard of high-end retailers already in the city, such as Vivienne Westwood, Ted Baker, Kurt Geiger, Hugo Boss, Paul Smith, The White Company, Jo Malone, and L’Occitane. Recent additions include Joules, Urban Outfitters and Kiehl show that the city continues to attract big brands.

Smaller independents are thriving in the city following our work to help diversify the High Street with initiatives such as Cobden Chambers - independent shopping in a refurbished courtyard - and Inspiring Retail - a competition which helped start up retailers to set up shops.

Nottingham’s student population also offers a great retail catchment on the doorstep with over 65,000 students living in the city centre – a major factor to retailers such as Urban Outfitters and American Apparel opening stores here.

With retail unit rents below those of other regional centres, and access to 3.8 million shoppers, our reach can benefit your business.

[Nottingham] has a vibrant restaurant scene, a concentration of successful technology companies and the cost of living, compared to London, is so much more reasonable, which is very helpful for a start-up.
