Fresh delivery due as centre announces first big arrival
AN award-winning maternity wear and baby clothing retailer is opening a new store in Stroud.
Jojo Maman Bebe is opening the new 1,205 square foot venue in Stroud’s Five Valleys shopping centre in a prime retail unit fronting King Street.
The store is set to open in September and is recruiting for six new jobs.
Managing director and founder Laura Tenison said: “We are really excited about opening in Stroud as we know that local parents are in tune with our deep-seated values.”
She continued: “We look forward to assisting expectant mothers, new parents, grandparents and baby gift buyers to find exactly what they need within a short distance of their homes.
“We hope to become embedded in the community, offering advice and
support to our customers from pregnancy to pre-school.”
Cheltenham’s Jojo Maman Bebe reopened underwent a complete refurbishment earlier this year.
The store’s opening is the first major announcement of a company moving to the town centre development since Yorkshire-based Dransfield Properties Ltd embarked on its £25million transformation of the centre.
A Dransfield spokesman said: “Jojo Maman Bebe is a great company which we have worked with for many years here at Dransfield Properties.
“We are proud to have successful Jojo stores at both our Sanderson Arcade development in Morpeth and Fox Valley in north Sheffield so we are really pleased to be building on our relationship with the new store at our Five Valleys development in Stroud.
“We are confident this will be a great addition to the town centre and look forward to making further announcements about new retailers joining the centre in the coming weeks.”
