Carter Towler’s head of retail, Pete Bradbury, said: “After all the difficulties the retail sector has had to face in the past year and a half, it’s fantastic to see confidence in the city centre bouncing back.

“Central Arcade already has a vibrant mix of retail and leisure businesses and we are working hard to build on that. The first floor in particular is becoming quite a sought-after leisure destination and we are delighted that all of these new tenants bring complementary services.”

“There is just one unit remaining on the ground floor now, Unit 10A, which has been completely refurbished.

“With the recent upsurge in demand I’m sure it won’t be long before it’s occupied.”

The new tenants are beauty business Dragonfly Skin, personal training company BodyUpWomen and specialist beauticians Glory By Tina.
