The store, called “@Home” will be taking over the ground floor of the old Debenhams unit meaning over 20,000 sqft of retail is coming to the Altrincham high street creating approximately 10 jobs.
The new, local and independently owned brand intends to open in time for Christmas, in line with the proposed retail reopening date around the 2nd December.
The arrival of @Home will bolster the growing number of independent and innovative retailers at the Stamford Quarter, as part of Bruntwood Works plans (in partnership with Trafford Council) to regenerate the high street in Altrincham,
The Stamford Quarter has already welcomed an artisan coffee concept to the Altrincham neighbourhood, created by independent record label Stutter and Twitch, as well as independent plant specialists Plant Shop Manchester.
@Home will offer an expertly curated collection of handmade furniture, homeware, nightwear and gifts.
James Tootle, Head of Retail and Leisure at Bruntwood Works said: “We’re proud to be supporting the high street in Altrincham. We’re committed to building a thriving neighbourhood in the Stamford Quarter, and helping businesses – big and small – trial new, innovative retail concepts. Our vision is to build a place where big brands sit alongside independent operators, and where hospitality, leisure and services also come together to create a blended, multi-functional, sustainable high street.”
“The addition of @Home brings us another step closer to that ambition”
Bruntwood Works are seeking more innovative and exciting brands to join the neighbourhood as part of their vision for the future of the Stamford Quarter. With opportunities ranging from pop up shops to large-scale units, there are lots of options for independent enterprises to join the new high street community in Altrincham.
More details of @Home including opening date and images will be released soon.
