Silverburn is set to generate more festive cheer with confirmation that two 'pop-up' shops will together create 20 seasonal jobs for the next three months.
Fashion lifestyle brand Ness, along with home furnishings and clothing specialist Cath Kidston are to begin trading at the South Side mall later this month before closing down after the traditional January sales.
It will be the first Ness 'pop-up' store. The firm's managing director, Gordon MacAulay, said: "Silverburn is the perfect location for our first ever pop-up store as it serves not only Glasgow but the whole of South West Scotland.
"The Silverburn store will recreate our vintage flagship store design, bringing the brand to life for consumers."
Chris McKendrick, commercial director at Cath Kidston, said: "We are excited to bring the brand to Silverburn to showcase our product range across all of our collections; home, accessories, clothing and kids."
He added: "We look for a very particular profile of location and Silverburn was the right match for our brand."
The store was founded by English fashion designer, entrepreneur and author Cath Kidston, whose work has included designing tents for the Milletts chain and shopping bags made from plastic bottles for Tesco which raised almost £500,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The 20 temporary posts come on top of the 100 seasonal workers the mall signed up at a jobs fair last month.
Silverburn's general manager, David Pierotti, is delighted with the latest developments. He said: "Welcoming these two iconic brands to our already strong fashion and lifestyle offering means Silverburn will be the place to shop this winter.
"Having created many seasonal jobs and with the announcement of our extension plans, it's a very exciting time for us ."
The Evening Times also revealed weeks before how nine new restaurants and a 14-screen Cineworld cinema will generate up to 500 jobs as part of a £20 milllion expansion of the mall. Italian eateries Pizza Express and Zizzi will be the first to open on completion of the expansion in 2015, and together will employ 50 workers.
