Up & Running hotfoots it to The Grand

Specialist running store Up & Running has taken one of the last remaining units at The Grand on Colmore Row.

Previously located on Temple Street, Up & Running has signed a ten-year lease on unit 4 (1,507 sq ft) at an annual rent of £50,000 with the landlord, Hortons’ Estate.

Established in 1992, Up & Running has 28 stores nationwide. The new store at The Grand will feature a state-of-the-art gait analysis system and running machine, and will stock all the latest footwear, clothing and accessories from brands including Asics, Brooks, Garmin, Mizuno, New Balance, Skins, and Under Armour. Steve Tommy at Hortons’ Estate said: “We have been overwhelmed by the level of interest in the retail units at The Grand and we’re pleased to have another quality name such as Up & Running adding to the tenant mix.

We are under offer on the last remaining unit, so we hope to have the retail element of The Grand fully let very soon.

Dennis Macfarlane, managing director of Up & Running, said:

We’re really excited to be opening a new store at The Grand. The relocation from Temple Street and the exceptional makeover of the building will give customers a modern, unparalleled shopping experience.

The letting to Up & Running follows the recent letting to clothing retailer The Liquor Store, which is relocating to The Grand from Great Western Arcade.

Other tenants include Gusto, The Alchemist, Cycle Republic, John Shepherd, Crockett & Jones, and 200 Degrees Coffee.
