The Broadway, Bradford has announced a new lease has been signed at the Centre with retailer The Gift Company, which has created six new jobs.
Located in the Petergate Mall, The Gift Company is set to open imminently. The 2,000 sq ft store in The Broadway will be the brand’s first store in the UK that will stock its full range of cards and gifts.
Ian Ward, General Manager at The Broadway, said: “Providing six new jobs for the community, this new lease marks a welcome addition to the wealth of brands and stores already found at The Broadway, particularly with the festive season quickly approaching.
“After a long period of consumers being bound to online-only shopping during the pandemic and subsequent national restrictions, we’re delighted to start holding meaningful conversations with brands that support and believe in the value of shopping experiences that bolster local economies.”
The Gift Company offers a wide range of products including candles, glassware, furniture, and gifts for men, women, children, pets, and the home. Additionally, it retails a significant Christmas range, with decorations, scents, and stocking fillers.
Michael Boote, Director of The Gift Company, commented: “ With the fabulous Christmas range and great prices we are known for, we can’t wait to welcome the local community in Bradford and the surrounding region through our doors.
“As the sixth branch of The Gift Company in Yorkshire, our presence at The Broadway promises to offer everything the people of Bradford need for upcoming celebrations. We’re delighted to be creating a number of new job opportunities in the region and can’t wait to join The Broadway portfolio.”
A family business established in 1995, The Gift Company has offered a wide variety of gifts and furniture for over 25 years, and now employs over 200 people in 40 branches around the UK.
The Broadway Bradford has more than 80 retail stores and over 20 eateries, plus an eight-screen boutique cinema.
