Braehead, one of the UK’s most popular retail and leisure destinations, owned by property company SGS and asset managed by Global Mutual in conjunction with Savills as property managers, is pleased to welcome beauty brand, KIKO Milano, to the centre as the store opens its doors to customers.

KIKO Milano, the Italian cosmetics brand, has opened a c.1,000 sq ft store stocking its range of beauty products including makeup, face and body treatments. The new unit has been signed on a 10-year lease and is located on the Upper Level of the shopping centre.


KIKO Milano currently has 25 stores across the UK with a rapid expansion plan to open multiple new stores in key shopping districts in the UK this year.

Braehead has continued to enhance its health and beauty offer following the opening of Scotland’s largest Superdrug at the centre last year – with Bodycare joining the centre’s line up last month.

Braehead is a leading retail and leisure destination situated just outside of Glasgow, covering 1.1 million sq ft and drawing from a catchment of approximately 2.1 million. The centre is home to a diverse mix of retail brands – including many renowned household names, such as M&S, Apple, Primark, TK Maxx and NEXT – as well as a host of exciting local and independent brands.

Paul Devin, KIKO Milano UK and Ireland Managing Director, comments:

“The launch of KIKO Milano into Braehead Shopping Centre marks a significant milestone for the brand with our first store in Scotland as part of our expansion plan. Braehead is a premium destination for the beauty shopper, and our partnership extends the accessibility of KIKO’s wide range of high-performance beauty products to an important new demographic.”

Steve Gray, Head of European Retail Asset Management at Global Mutual, comments:  

“KIKO Milano is a great addition to Braehead’s health and beauty offer and builds on the momentum created by the opening of Superdrug last year and Bodycare last month.

“We know the new store will be a hit with our shoppers – helping to drive footfall and spend.

Braehead remains a top attraction for the area and the openings are indicative of the continued strength of physical retail. We have further updates in the pipeline and look forward to announcing more positive news in due course.”
