Durham retail park sales soar following new store openings

A Durham retail park has announced an increase in both sales and visitor numbers for 2019.

Dalton Park, which houses branches of national brands such as Adidas, Hallmark and White Stuff, said that it saw a turnover increase of 4 per cent, as well as a visitor number increase of 3.2 per cent.

Within the past year, the outlet has introduced three new stores - WHSmith, White Stuff and Designer Shoes - and has refurbished existing stores Adidas, Moss, Kurt Muller and The Cosmetics Company.

Further refurbishments are planned this year, with Hallmark, Mountain Warehouse and Radley all enhancing their store environments this spring, and new restaurant Codrophenia has already opened since the end of the financial year.

Jerry Hatch, centre manager at Dalton Park, said: “We had a very positive 2019 with plenty of good news; we welcomed new stores, witnessed some major retail investments and even secured an award for our eco-friendly loos.

“Everyone is really pleased with the figures, seeing our footfall grow by 3.2 per cent last year is outstanding.

“It’s a testament to all the hardworking staff and retailers, who work hard all-year round to ensure our customers have the best experience possible.

“We are optimistic that this trend will continue into 2020, with further store refurbishments, exciting events and new store openings already planned.”
