Progress shows no signs of slowing at The Rock with over 18,000 sq ft of retail space signed up by retailers over the past seven days and the appointment of Nikki Kitchen as Marketing Manager.
Joining the team which will manage the £350million scheme, Nikki brings a wealth of retail and leisure experience, including roles at Shoppertainment Ltd, House of Fraser and more recently at The Printworks in Manchester.
Nikki’s appointment coincides with five new signings at The Rock, all of which are new brands to Bury. The Entertainer, the largest independent retailer of toys in the UK has taken 4,000 sq ft, and international shoe retailer, DEICHMANN, will occupy 8,300 sq ft. The Perfume Shop, has also signed up to occupy 510 sq ft.

Nikki Kitchen, Marketing Manager for The Rock commented: “To be a part of bringing such an important development to fruition is very exciting. There is a fantastic mix of retail and leisure operators already secured and the five new signings which bring new brands to Bury will certainly add to The Rock’s retail appeal.”
