Iconic brand Oliver Bonas to open new store in Harrogate
The Iconic British lifestyle brand is launching a store in North Yorkshire.
Oliver Bonas is due to open in James Street, Harrogate, in September.
The fashion and lifestyle retailer has agreed a lease for the ground floor area of a prominent building on the street from owners, Countrylarge, which is also preparing proposals to convert the upper floors into boutique serviced apartments.
Antony Rosindale, pf Countrylarge, said: “We’re very excited to be bringing a leading lifestyle brand to the heart of Harrogate town centre and our vision for the building will fully utilise all the existing space.
"It’s a grand building and we want to ensure that it is all used in the best way possible.”
Tom Limbert, director of property consultants, Central Retail, who acted for Countrylarge, added: “It’s been a pleasure working with Countrylarge, and Oliver Bonas is an iconic brand who befits such a majestic building.
"Having acted for various landlord clients over the past 12 months, we have introduced Pret A Manger, Ebru Evrim & Carl Scarpa to the street and have also upsized Hotel Chocolat.”
“James street has been re-invigorated and its vibrancy has returned to a pre-pandemic state. There are more outstanding high-end retailers destined for the area.
"The good news is that all units are now fully occupied.
“Oliver Bonas will be a great addition to the existing tenant line up on James Street which truly is one of the best high streets in the north of England.”
