Nottingham city centre shopping arcade Flying Horse Walk is celebrating full occupancy after new arrivals, tenant anniversaries and store refurbishments.
Flying Horse Walk is located between South Parade and St Peter’s Gate, and houses a mixture of national and independent luxury brands – selling fashion, art, technology, food and drink, and arts and crafts.
Retailers within the arcade now includes fashion boutiques Vivienne Westwood, Gigi Bottega and Pearl Boutique, art galleries George Thornton Art and Whitewall Galleries, food and drink units The Cheese Shop and Brew Cavern, wedding shop Berketex Bride, arts and crafts store Inspired, Brik Squared Barbershop, Flying Horse Vapes, and alterations service Apalts.
This year has seen a number of changes to Flying Horse Walk, including the arrival of hi-fi and home cinema retailer Sevenoaks Sound and Vision.
The national electrical retailer chain opened its Nottingham doors for the first time on September 23, specialising in hi-fi and home cinema systems and stocking products including 4K UHD TVs, home cinema equipment, turntables, amplifiers and speakers.
The new store is located in the arcade next to Vivienne Westwood and opposite Whitewall Galleries – which also underwent an extensive refurbishment this year.
The national art gallery chain completed a major renovation and modernisation project to its existing unit in February, which involved moving the shop frontage further into the walkway at the northern entrance of the arcade.
The interior of the store was also expanded and modernised, with the installation of backlit LED walls to further enhance the artwork on sale, and a new entertainment and bar area.
Within the changes to the northern entrance, a new digital touch screen was installed to an exterior wall on South Parade – with an aim to benefit the entire arcade and all of its retailers.
The touch screen now provides on-the-go content for passers-by and visitors, including a useful site map, store directory and individual tenant sections listing opening times, product information, offers and contact details.
2017 also saw the celebration of a number of key milestones for tenants within Flying Horse Walk, including the second anniversary of luxury fashion boutique Gigi Bottega, the third anniversaries of specialist craft beer, real ale and cider shop Brew Cavern and popular coffee shop 200 Degrees, and the sixth anniversary of gallery George Thornton Art.
Jack Shakespeare at FHP said:
“It’s been a good year for the arcade – we’ve had the arrival of a new tenant, a number of refurbishments and some proud anniversaries.
It’s amazing to be at full occupancy, we’re proud to champion both independent and national names in Flying Horse Walk.”
