Braehead, one of the UK’s most popular retail and leisure destinations, owned by property company SGS and managed by Global Mutual, is pleased to announce that TKMaxx opens the doors to its new store, just in time for the festive season.

The new 27,000 sq ft store will offer customers much-loved brands and designer labels at affordable prices – with the retailer’s clothing, accessories, homeware and beauty offers stocked.

The unit, which has been signed on a 15-year lease, is located in a prime position on the ground floor, next to M&S.


TK Maxx joins a strong line-up – with brands such as Apple, H&M and Boots already at the centre.

The news also follows a host of other new signing and relocation deals at Braehead, with other recent openings including Scotland’s largest Superdrug, Sports Direct, Quiz, Poundland, Yankee Candle, and The Fragrance Shop.

Braehead is a leading retail and leisure destination, situated off junction 26 of the M8, 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 and NEXT – as well as a host of exciting local and independent brands.

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

“It is great to see TKMaxx open its doors at the centre [today]. Household name brands like this one act as a real draw for shoppers and we know there will be a real buzz around the opening – especially as we head into the festive shopping period.

“The new store will broaden our fashion and homeware offer, helping to keep the shopper experience fresh and compelling.

“We’ve welcomed a number of new brands and seen existing ones grow their footprint at Braehead over recent months – reflecting the continued resilience of physical retail in prime locations like our own. We’ve had a strong year at the centre overall and are optimistic about the months ahead.”
