COLOURFUL Danish retailer Flying Tiger has opened a pop-up store in Fleet Walk Shopping Centre, Torquay.
The popular Tiger homeware and gift store, recently re-branded Flying Tiger Copenhagen, already has branches in Exeter and Plymouth and 600 shops around the world.
Tom Johnston, asset manager for Fleet Walk Shopping Centre said: “Flying Tiger is an extremely popular brand and we’re thrilled they’re here with us for a few months. They offer a unique and fun product range and take us a step closer in our aim to bring new retailers to Torquay and expand the retail offer.”
The founder of Flying Tiger, Lennart Lajboschitz, opened his first family-run store in 1995 in a rough-around-the-edges neighbourhood of Copenhagen and has gone on to create a global high street brand which offers customers affordable and quality products.
A Tiger spokesman said: “At our stores, you’ll find things you need, things you’ve dreamed of and things you never even knew existed. Things for your home, your office, your parties, your kids, your kitchen, and more. They’re stylish and colourful, practical and original, and most of them have a Danish flavour and a humorous touch.
SPECULATION is growing about big names moving into Torquay’s Fleet Street shopping centre including Starbucks, KFC, Poundland and Nando’s.
Starbucks has been holding job interviews and appointing staff for a new premises in Torquay.
A planning application has been made following the closure of the Toy Sale shop at the bottom of Fleet Walk, knocking through into the adjoining former Pizza Hut.
It is understood that KFC is set to move into the new bigger premises.
Meanwhile Poundland plans to double in size by extending into the existing KFC further up Fleet Walk.
It is also understood that two gyms are looking at the possibility of opening health and fitness businesses within the shopping centre.
Meanwhile there has been ongoing speculation about Nando’s interest in opening a restaurant in Torquay.
The rumour has been fuelled by the closure of Fleet Walk’s longest-standing tenants, The Wood Shop, which closed its largest unit on the ground floor in the rondel at the bottom of the centre over Christmas.
