The shop is located on Sadler Gate which has previously been Ark clothing, Sadler Spring fish spa and most recently Design 44 who, earlier this year, moved into premises elsewhere in Sadler Gate. John Forkin, Managing Director or Marketing Derby “White Stuff has been on our target list for some time and we are delighted that they have chosen to invest in Derby, one of many such premium brands being attracted to the City” Martin Langsdale, chair of the Cathedral Quarter Management Group, which drives forward activities under the area’s BID status, said: “The investment by White Stuff is further recognition that the Cathedral Quarter is the premium retail heart of the city. “It signals that the work that we have all been doing under the BID for the past seven years to position the Cathedral Quarter as a high quality destination is bearing fruit. “Our efforts as part of the wider inward investment partnership in the city have attracted a wide range of first rate independent retailers, food and drink establishments and professional firms. Now, the arrival of White Stuff is pivotal in the future growth of the Cathedral Quarter’s reputation. “White Stuff will greatly enhance the fashion retail offer in the Cathedral Quarter – complementing the businesses already established here – and will be a fantastic draw for customers far and wide. “We look forward to working with White Stuff as part of our overall work to raise the profile of the Cathedral Quarter and attract more people and businesses back into this unique part of the city centre.”
