Oseyo: A Taste of Korea Joins Manchester Arndale


Oseyo, the Leading Korean Supermarket Chain, Chooses Manchester Arndale for its Newest 12,580 sq ft Store, Signing a 15-Year Lease

with an existing shop on Oxford Road, Oseyo is set to infuse the heart of the city centre with vibrant Korean and Asian flavors. Shoppers can look forward to a diverse array of groceries and products, including snacks, sauces, fresh produce, and authentic ingredients.

‘Oseyo’, which means Welcome’ in Korean, is the message at the very core of the brand; catering to both the Korean community and those eager to explore new culinary experiences, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and discover. Oseyo also brings exciting produce from some of Korea’s biggest food brands, such as CJ BIBIGO, DAESANG, SAMYANG and NONGSHIM to a wider UK audience.
The arrival of Oseyo continues a strong run of lettings to major global brands including Moss, Gilly Hicks, Nike, Manchester City, Clarks, Flying Tiger, MINISO, Tommy Hilfiger, Kick Game and Kurt Geiger. The store will also prove a welcome addition to the centre’s thriving food and beverage offer, which includes recent arrivals Black Sheep Coffee, Krispy Kreme, and Slim Chickens.
Steve Gray, Head of European Retail Asset Management at Global Mutual, said: “We’re very excited to welcome Oseyo to Manchester Arndale as we continue to enhance our varied offer. We place great importance on creating a mix that caters to the city’s diverse taste and we are certain Oseyo will fit the bill. With such exciting leasing activity taking place it’s clear there is continued demand for well-placed retail units, and we are delighted to see confidence in Manchester Arndale’s long-term performance; we hope to share more exciting news soon.”
Isaac Kweon, Operations Coordinator at Oseyo, said: “Our new store in Manchester Arndale is our largest and most ambitious project so far in our journey, and we are excited to bring to the people of Manchester a truly global and refined shopping experience. With an ever growing range of exclusive products which we directly produce or import with partner brands in Korea, we aim to provide for our customers a unique experience found nowhere else.”
