Quedam owner to bring new fashion retailer to Yeovil

The plans for Vicarage Walk will see the long vacant Mothercare and former Internacionale shops redesigned to form one large unit.  Benson Elliot and its award-winning architects, Allies and Morrison, have worked closely with the Council to prepare sensitive, high-quality designs that are both fresh and exciting while complementing the area’s historic surroundings.

The proposed 15,000 sq ft unit, around twice the size of New Look, will bring a new high street brand to the shopping centre, which currently includes Primark, BHS, Marks & Spencer, River Island, Monsoon, USC and Topshop.

Peter Cornforth, Director of Retail at Benson Elliot, said: 

“This investment is the first step in our commitment to improving the Quedam, by bringing fresh and fashionable vitality to Yeovil and giving south Somerset shoppers a great reason to visit the town centre.  We’ve designed the project to fit with the Council’s policies of supporting in-town retail development and see that as a vital part of attracting new investment and key retail brands to Yeovil. Town centres are the heart of our communities and we want this proposal to act as a catalyst for further improvements.”
