The first phase of Wembley Park Market, located in the heart of €3.4bn Wembley Park urban development being delivered by Quintain, has welcomed its first customers. Operated by mRktmRkt, the London-based market and retail emporium developer, the new attraction offers brands of all shapes and sizes the opportunity to occupy a physical space within Wembley Park’s appealing environment. With fashion, food, homeware, wellness and services all under one roof, Quintain is working with start-ups, entrepreneurs and local businesses alike to create a community of makers and merchants in a single retail space.
Adjacent to the world-famous National Stadium, Wembley Park is a new neighbourhood for North London set to attract over 20 million visitors a year and benefit from an annual retail spend of €365.7m (£328m) at almost 70 new shops, restaurants and services.
Matt Slade, Retail Director at Quintain, said: ‘‘This mix of retailers is exactly what we had aimed to bring to Wembley Park Market and is a very positive indication of what the further phases hold. Community and enterprise go hand-in-hand in Wembley Park, so it’s important that we continue to nourish the independent brands that put their confidence in the scheme and the huge opportunity that it brings with it. We are very much looking forward to seeing these brands thrive and are enormously proud of the part that the Market will play in that.’’
