We are now well into 2024 and exciting changes are afoot at Sanderson Arcade.
There are several exciting events and developments taking place at Morpeth’s popular shopping destination Sanderson Arcade making it the hottest spot in the Northeast this year!
High footfall at our centre
The centre witnessed a remarkable year during 2023 – surpassing pre-pandemic footfall rates and welcoming a host of new businesses to the centre.
Throughout 2023, the shopping centre attracted an impressive number of visitors, marking an increase of 3.5% compared to 2022 – despite tough trading condition on the high street and economic uncertainty.
The centre’s unique combination of national and boutique independent retailers, alongside a diverse range of beauty and health services, has established Sanderson Arcade as both a key local service provider and a popular regional visitor destination.
Managing Director James Shepherd said, “The centre’s success over the last 12 months is definitely attributable to our varied retail mix and the enhancement of our food and beverage offer. Notable openings like Martino Lounge alongside our independent gastro pub Barluga have transformed Sanderson Arcade into a hub for shopping and socialising.”
2024 is set to be even more exciting for the market town shopping arcade, with some exciting new brands joining the shopping line up.
Welcoming new businesses
We love it when new businesses join the Sanderson Arcade family.
With growing interest from national retailers, plans are underway in 2024 to expand the Arcade’s retail offer – bringing new brands to the centre with announcements being made soon.
One major brand that will join us in 2024 is The White Company – which sells a range of luxury home, clothing and fragrance goods, plus beauty and spa items and gifts for babies and children.
Popular products that have earned top reviews that customers can look forward to indulging in include candles that can add a fresh fragrance and ambience to your home, chandelier ceiling lights to add a touch of class to your interior, and a range of other top items such as throws, rugs and cushions, plus clothing such as jumpers, coats and jackets.
The store will be opening in Sanderson Arcade early this Summer.
2024 marks our anniversary
We are celebrating our 15th year anniversary in November 2024 – so please keep an eye out on our website for how we are planning to celebrate this big occasion.
Plenty of other big plans for this year
