Tiger opens first Glaswegian branch

Published on: 16th October 2012

Tiger, a European retail business, will open its first Glaswegian branch on the city’s Sauchiehall Street.

Tiger has signed a ten-year lease with landlord the Trustees of MCUPT for the corner unit 159/163 on Sauchiehall Street. Tiger began trading in 1995 in Copenhagen, selling stylish homeware, stationary, toys and hobby items. The company has since developed into a recognised chain with more than 120 stores across 16 European countries. The store in Sauchiehall Street is Tiger’s third store in Scotland and first store in Glasgow.

Jones Lang LaSalle acted as agents for Tiger. Gunn Property Consultants and CBRE acted as agents on behalf of the landlord.

David Simmons, director of Jones Lang LaSalle in Glasgow, commented: “We are confident that Glaswegian shoppers will take to this exciting new brand opening in the city, Tiger’s third store in Scotland following openings in Livingston and Dunfermline earlier in the year.

“Tiger’s eye-catching fit-out style and product will be showcased perfectly in such a prominent corner unit and there are few busier retail thorough-fares in the UK than Sauchiehall Street, so there seems little doubt the store will be a huge success.”
