Little Zebra, which specialises in designer baby and children’s wear, and gaming and comic shop Vault 14, have launches new outlets at Waterdale Shopping Centre.

This latest move follows a previous announcement about a year ago that 11 leases had been agreed with other stores.

Regeneration specialist St. Modwen bought the 46-retail unit site for more than £3.6m a few years ago and said this latest announcement was a continuation of their regeneration plans for Waterdale.

Paul Brustad, asset manager at St. Modwen, said: “This is all part of our ongoing work to attract new retailers in order to continue to revitalise and improve the centre.”

Little Zebra, managed by not-for-profit organisation, Open Cast, has opened at 29 Kingsgate after signing a five year lease.

Vault 14, located at 30 Kingsgate, has signed a three year lease after moving premises from Scot Lane in the town centre.

Bob Dowling, development manager at Open Cast, described the move as a “fantastic opportunity to get involved with the development of a vibrant and successful new Waterdale Shopping Centre.”

Shaun Ward, owner of Vault 14, added: “We are looking forward to being part of the continued regeneration of Waterdale.”
