New international shops coming to Lyngby
An expansion and a significant rebuilding of more than 5,000 sqm in Lyngby Storcenter have now been initiated. This will make room for the brand new shop concept Arket and to the other fashion and lifestyle stores of international format that are expected to open in November 2018. Concurrently, the existing H&M store will be expanded and supplemented by an H&M Home shop-in-shop.
Arket is welcomed in Lyngby Storcenter
An agreement has been made with three new anchor stores to be located on the rebuilt first floor. Arket takes up about 1,000 sqm, and when the store opens, it will be the first time this concept appears in a centre.
"We are very pleased to have made an agreement with Arket, who has chosen Lyngby Storcenter due to its high profile and turnover. We continuously strive to strengthen Lyngby Storcenter as a meeting place for people from all of North Zealand with a unique selection that is not found in other shopping centres in and around Copenhagen," says Finn Sture Madsen, Department Manager at DEAS, who manages Lyngby Storcenter and is the consultant to the owner regarding the rebuilding.
Arket offers fashion for men, women and children as well as home accessories. The concept also includes a café serving new Nordic food.
The names of the two other anchor stores cannot be released yet, but they will offer shopping at a level that is unique according to Danish standards.
The first floor will be expanded by 600 sqm
The major rebuilding of more than 5,000 sqm equals half of the shopping area on the first floor. In order to create additional space for new, large stores it will be expanded by approx. 600 sqm, and several of the centre passages will be moved to create a more natural customer flow.
"With the new shops on the first floor, we want to create a special shopping experience and spoil our customers with a carefully selected range of products. It is not just about the actual purchase but also about sharing experiences and being inspired. For the rebuilding we have entered into an agreement with the firm of architects, Spacelab, to ensure that the existing and the new shops form a whole. We are sure that the coming universe on the first floor will appeal to a major part of our customers," says Property Manager Eva Handest on behalf of Danske Shoppingcentre that owns Lyngby Storcenter.
Lyngby Storcenter is the largest shopping centre in North Zealand with 125 shops and 7 million visitors every year.
