Seasalt announces plans for new south Yorkshire store

24 March 2016

The Cornish fashion and homeware retailer, Seasalt, has announced plans to launch its first stand-alone store in Yorkshire at north Sheffield’s new £50 million Fox Valley development.

The family business’ fantastic range is stocked in independent boutiques across Yorkshire and the rest of the UK but the new 1,560 sq. ft. Fox Valley store will be the first stand-alone venture in the region. 

Seasalt was founded in 1981 and has won several national awards including the prestigious 2013 Drapers Womenswear Brand of the Year Award.

The iconic Cornish brand prides itself on creating beautiful and useful women’s and children’s clothing and homewares reflecting Cornwall’s coastline and landscapes, and focussing on the very best quality and styling.

Seasalt currently has 33 shops across the UK. The brand opened its most northerly store at Sanderson Arcade in Morpeth last month – the Arcade is also owned by the Fox Valley developers Dransfield Properties, based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

The new Fox Valley store will open when the centre is officially launched on the 16th June and Seasalt will join a host of other high quality national retailers and great independent companies.

The new store will be based in one of the retail units built around the landscaped peace gardens area at Fox Valley alongside the centre’s restaurants and coffee shops.

Co-founder of Seasalt, Leigh Chadwick, said, “We’ve all worked incredibly hard at Seasalt to get to where we are and we’re delighted to be bringing a touch of Cornwall to the region. We’ve always been driven by innovation and keeping things new so it’s great to be part of this venture with Fox Valley.”

Mark Dransfield, Managing Director of Dransfield Properties said: “We are delighted that the team at Seasalt have chosen Fox Valley for the company’s first stand-alone store in Yorkshire.”

“We want Fox Valley to be a really unique retail experience which I hope is something which is reflected in the design and the architecture. Attracting a range of stores and restaurants which bring something completely different to the area is a key part of creating our new retail destination for north Sheffield.”
