The chain has relocated in a new 4,000-plus sq ft unit at the retail park next to Superdrug.

Nathan Williams, Chief Executive Officer at Mamas & Papas, said: “We’re excited to be opening our brand-new Teesside Park store which will help us to continue to offer new and expectant families the support they need. 

“Customers visiting our relocated store will have access to our dedicated Mamas & Papas team of experts, who will provide tailored, independent advice and recommendations to parents-to-be and their families.

"Being able to test and compare pushchairs, have car seats fitted into their car before buying, and gaining nursery furniture inspiration is something every new parent should have access to.”

The new store is one of several set to open at Teesside Park this year.

Primark has announced plans to open at the retail park following a £140m UK-wide investment in its stores.

And last month plans were launched to overhaul the former Toys R Us unit which has sat vacant for five years, although no announcement has yet been made as to who could be moving into the building.
