Dunelm has opened a new superstore at the Flemingate centre in Beverley, East Yorkshire.

The UK homewares retailer has become the retail and leisure destination’s new anchor operator after taking over a 41,000 sq ft former department store.

Dunelm has taken a 10-year lease on the two-storey unit to bring its new multi-department superstore format to the centre. The store opened just before Christmas, creating 40 jobs.

Dunelm’s arrival is a further major boost to Flemingate, which is owned and operated by Yorkshire property developer Wykeland Group, following a series of other recent openings.

Wykelandroperty Director David Donkin said: “Dunelm taking over this unit, and in doing so becoming the new anchor tenant, is testament to the strength of the centre and the vitality of Beverley as a retail marketplace.

“Flemingate is now almost fully let, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, meaning it offers greater choice, variety and an even better experience for customers than ever before.”

Dunelm has an unrivalled range, including exclusive brands and own-label products, and a growing presence in the furniture market. It has 50,000 product lines and is renowned for helping customers create homes they love by offering choice, value, quality and style.

The new Flemingate store is the latest addition to Dunelm’s network of more than 170 outlets across the country. The store’s departments include Made to Measure and Decorate & Co-ordinate, including Dunelm’s new range of own brand paints, as well as a Take Home Today furniture section.

The store also features a Dunelm’s own Pausa coffee shop, serving freshly-ground Arabica coffee and a range of sandwiches, cakes and treats for shoppers to enjoy.

Store Manager Stuart Welburn said: “We’re really excited to open our new superstore and welcome so many happy shoppers.

“The store offers all the latest Dunelm concepts and new products and is a fantastic addition to the retail offer at Flemingate.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be here, providing customers will an exceptional shopping experience in this thriving location.”
