They join other names previously announced by the Northants Telegraph including Skechers, Beaverbrooks, Three and Hotter.

The Garden Square features an enclosed garden space with insect habitats, logs and boulders to encourage play, biodiverse planting, a drinking fountain and USB charging points.

Robin Orgill, Winvic’s construction director, commented: “As with the two previous phases of Rushden Lakes, we were able to complete Garden Square quickly, efficiently and cost effectively within a multi-faceted programme comprising many end user enhancements within a live environment.

“The retail and green space is a high quality addition to the existing complex, providing a corner of relaxation for visitors as well as ten boutique shops.

“We have delivered Phase 3 with our usual attention to detail and commitment to design and environmental standards, and it has been a pleasure to work with LXB, The Crown Estate and a huge number of end users over the past four years and make this scheme a success all round.”

Jon McCarthy, principal at LXB Retail, added that their partnership had helped “to deliver a special retail and leisure destination for the people of Northamptonshire and beyond”.
