We're delighted to have completed a 10 year lease with online upholstery furniture retailer Arlo & Jacob, bringing the family-run company to the South East for the first time. Due to open after Easter, Arlo & Jacob will occupy just over 6,000 sq ft at Marlow's Windsor House.
Windsor House is a new build mixed-use scheme located on Spittal Street, at the top of Marlow High Street, and is a key gateway site into the Georgian market town. Arlo & Jacob will be joining a vibrant local retail and leisure mix, including a selection of national retailers, numerous independent boutiques and a diverse dining offer.
Marlow is the latest destination for Arlo & Jacob, following the successful opening of showrooms in London's Fulham, Bristol and Harrogate.
Harvey Roberts, Commercial Director at Arlo & Jacob, said: "Arlo & Jacob is now four years old and we are firmly out of the start up phase. Looking ahead, we have ambitious expansion plans for the next phase of our growth, and this includes investing in our e-commerce platform as well increasing our bricks and mortar presence with a select number of retail showrooms. Marlow not only meets our target customer demographic, but it allows us to become a part of the local fabric and community of both national and independent retailers. We look forward to opening soon."
Tamra Booth, Managing Director at Sorbon Estates, said: "As a family-run UK based business, Arlo & Jacob is exactly the sort of retailer we like to work with, especially as this previously online-only company recognises the value of having selective physical retail outlets. We are very much long-term investors in the towns across the Sorbon Estates portfolio, and are committed to preserving both the character and vitality of a town like Marlow. We are confident that Arlo & Jacob is ideally suited to joining Marlow and are pleased to have worked with the company on this phase of its expansion."
