BOSSES at Huddersfield shopping centre Kingsgate have claimed a "coup" by landing three high-profile retailers.
Music and video retailer HMV, Burton Menswear and accessories chain Xtras Accessories have all moved into the £50m centre.
HMV has brought about 50 jobs to the centre after moving into the 8,000sq ft shop unit formerly occupied by fashion retailer Gap.
Burton Menswear is moving to a 4,000sq ft unit from its town centre premises on the corner of New Street and Cloth Hall Street.
Burton's new unit in Kingsgate was formerly occupied by men's fashion chain Ciro Citterio.
And Xtras Accessories - which has stores in Leeds and Sheffield's Meadowhall - has taken a small unit of 300sq ft to sell hair accessories and cosmetics.
Burtons and Xtras together employ about 50 staff.
Kingsgate manager Jonathan Hardy said: "This is quite a coup for the centre. We were sad to lose Gap, but we could not get a better replacement than HMV.
"Burton's move will be good for the centre and for them. They will have a lot bigger store on one level."
Mr Hardy added: "These are both stable, established brands who will not be disappearing from the scene."
Peter Everest, head of Kingsgate's owner and developer, WD Huddersfield, said: "These new retailers add variety to a successful scheme."
HMV will hold an official opening tomorrow, with an appearance by chart-topper Peter Andre. He will cut the ribbon at 12.30pm, then meet fans at 12.45pm.
Two other businesses, the Toy Shop - which has a store in Holmfirth - and sweets retailer Sweet Bliss recently took stalls on the main mall.
