Puma and Apple are the latest retailers to take space at Legal & General’s Midsummer Place in Milton Keynes.

It will be the third store in the UK for fashion retailer Puma which has taken a 3,500 sq ft unit on a 10 year lease at a Zone A rent of £215. Apple has taken a 4,500 sq ft unit on similar terms.

The lettings to Puma and Apple follow recent lettings to fashion retailers Coast and Hobbs and menswear retailer Hugo Boss. Other major retailers include Zara, Top Shop, Gap, H&M, Karen Millen, Mango, Footlocker, Schuh and Bank. The 418,000 sq ft scheme is anchored by Debenhams.

Rob Williams, a director at Strutt & Parker which advises Legal & General, said: ‘Traditionally these retailers have not included Milton Keynes on their requirements list. However recent benchmarking against the main Regional Shopping Centres has confirmed that the Milton Keynes catchment has the largest proportion of the high spending 25-44 age group.’
