Westfield has signed up Debenhams and M&S at Nottingham and Bradford.
Westfield and Hermes’ at their Broadmarsh scheme in Nottingham have signed up both Debenhams and M&S to anchor the £700m redevelopment of the centre.
Debenhams will replace its existing 101,911 sq ft store with a 155,000 sq ft store. Marks & Spencer has agreed heads of terms at the 1.4m sq ft £700m Nottingham redevelopment. The overall scheme is planned to more than double the size of the existing Broadmarsh centre.
Debenhams and M&S have also agreed to open stores at Westfield’s 588,000 sq ft £300m Broadway regeneration project in the centre of Bradford.
Lastly M&S has also signed up at Westfield’s Stratford development in east London. Stratford City, the retail-led, mixed-use urban regeneration project adjacent to the site of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, already has John Lewis and Waitrose as anchors.
Stuart Rose, chief executive of Marks & Spencer, said: ‘As we’ve said before, opening new stores is an important part of M&S’ strategy for the future and we are committed to improving and increasing our city centre offer.
Both retailers will open at Westfield Derby’s scheme next week.
