Ray Cliff, Head of Centre Management, who is heading up the redevelopment of Princes Quay, said:
“This £20m investment is a great addition to the city – we’re bringing outlet shopping into the heart of Hull for the very first time, so shoppers will have more choice, right on their doorstep, without having to travel to Leeds or York.
“With new stores opening across the whole of centre and exciting plans we have for more community and cultural events, it spells a positive future for Princes Quay. This is just the start.”
A total revamp has taken place on the upper level to make way for a total of 24 new outlet stores. The whole of Princes Quay has also undergone some cosmetic improvements, including new ceilings, flooring and lighting giving a fresh, bright and modern look to the 26-year-old shopping centre as it is set to become the first in the UK to host outlet and high street stores under one roof.
