Aberdeen expansion for White Stuff

Fashion clothing retailer White Stuff is to open its fourth Scottish store, situated in Aberdeen.

The fashion and lifestyle specialist has taken over the lease of a 1400 sq ft ground floor unit at 22 Back Wynd on a 10 year lease with an annual rental of 28,000.

White Stuff was started more than 20 years ago when hard up college friends Sean Thomas and George Treves sold t-shirts to skiers as a means of raising funds to stay in the French Alps. The company is now one of the UK's most successful clothing and lifestyle brands and has 56 UK stores.

The previous tenant, CLC Bookshops, has relocated to new premises on John Street. Leading Aberdeen commercial property consultants, FG Burnett acted for CLC in the disposal of its existing lease.

FG Burnett surveyor, Kevin Jackson, said: "White Stuff's move in to Aberdeen is a confidence boost for the city's retail sector and demonstrates that, beyond the challenging retail climate nationally, deals in Aberdeen are still being done. The addition of White Stuff further strengthens the Back Wynd location which already benefits from other high quality occupiers."
