NCF Living completes regional retail park homewares line-up

Sovereign Centros from CBRE has announced that Metro Retail Park, a North East destination for homewares and furniture, is now fully let, following the opening of NCF Living, a retailer specialising in sofas, dining, and beds.

Metro Retail Park benefits from its adjacency to Metrocentre, one of the top five super-regional malls in the UK, and the number-one destination in the North East.

The new NCF Living store, a first for the brand in the North East, has been designed to showcase a range of contemporary and classic British-made furniture.

NCF Living has taken one of the three units created by the redevelopment of the former Toys R Us, following significant landlord investment. The other two are occupied by Dreams and Designer Sofas, resulting in all of the newly created 25,000 sqft of space being let.

Dreams opened its two-storey store late last year, while Designer Sofas has launched a 7500 sqft unit focused on Italian luxury and contemporary sofas.

The completion of lettings follows recent investment in Metro Retail Park, which saw a newly designed, contemporary terrace, car park resurfacing, and updated landscaping. Metro Retail Park has also had six EV chargers installed by Ionity, with plans to increase to twelve 350kW fast electric vehicle chargers by the end of the year.

Ben Cox, director at Sovereign Centros from CBRE, comments: “Having NCF Living open at Metro Retail Park completes the letting there, and marks a great milestone for the destination. The plan to create three new retail warehouse spaces was a carefully considered response to the challenge of Toys R Us closing. Having these taken by three leading furniture brands both justifies that decision, and keeps Metro Retail Park’s status as the go-to location for homewares in the North East.”

A spokesperson at NCF Living adds: “We are delighted to have opened a store at Metro Retail Park, to offer customers a range of furniture without compromising on quality and style. We will be providing customers access to acquire furniture promptly and at the most competitive prices.”
