ABYstyle Full Stuff Set to Open First UK Store on Vicar Lane, Leeds

6th November 2023

Leading property developer and car parking operator, Town Centre Securities PLC (TCS) announces the latest brand set to join its prestigious Vicar Lane scheme in the heart of Leeds.  Abysse Corp, a leading manufacturer of officially licensed merchandise in the realms of manga, movies, series, gaming, comics and music, will open the doors to its new store on November 18 2023, marking a significant milestone as the company’s first retail presence in the United Kingdom.


The new 100 sq.m ABYstyle Full Stuff store will offer a wide range of products for enthusiasts and collectors, including figurines, posters, frames, key-rings, mugs and much more, with a focus on high-quality and officially licensed merchandise and will create three new jobs for the Leeds community on opening.


While this is ABYstyle Full Stuff’s first store in the UK, the company, who have become a trusted destination for fans looking to bring their favourite franchises to life, is no stranger to the region. In 2021, the Abysse Corp Group acquired GB Eye LTD, which is based in Sheffield, giving the company a strong presence with offices, warehouses, and production facilities in the area. ABY Style also serves the UK through business-to-business channels, further cementing its footprint in the country.


The decision to open the new store, strategically located in the heart of Leeds’ premium retail core, was influenced by the desire to be closer to the company’s headquarters in Sheffield while capitalizing on the vibrant and dynamic nature of Leeds as a city.


Charlotte Beaufils, from Abysse Corp, expressed her enthusiasm for the new store, stating,


“We are excited to bring the world of officially licensed merchandise closer to our UK fans.


“This store represents our commitment to delivering the best products to our customers and we can’t wait to see the vibrant Leeds community embrace it.”


Charles Newman, Associate Director, Estates for Town Centre Securities PLC said,


“Leeds is a dynamic city that continually attracts innovative and exciting businesses. We are thrilled to have the first UK ABYstyle Full Stuff store join our list of esteemed tenants at Vicar Lane which exemplifies our dedication to providing exceptional spaces that meet the needs and expectations of both businesses and the community.


“We look forward to witnessing the positive impact this addition will have on Vicar Lane and the city of Leeds and are confident that this new outlet will resonate with the vibrant community of fans and collectors.”
