Victoria’s Secret to arrive in London’s Brent Cross
Famous lingerie and sleepwear retailer Victoria’s Secret is set to add another store to its UK portfolio, opening in London’s Brent Cross shopping centre in November this year.
Made up of four existing units, the 12,000 sq ft store will feature in a prime location in the mall, which is joint owned by Hammerson and Standard Life Investments UK Shopping Centre Trust.
Sheila King, leasing director, new business at Hammerson said: “Adding this world-renowned brand to the line up at Brent Cross demonstrates global retailers’ continued confidence in our long term plans for the centre as well as the strong trading opportunity the scheme offers today. Continuing to attract international brands and diversify our retail offer is key to maintaining Brent Cross’s appeal amongst its loyal catchment.”
Victoria’s Secret made its UK debut back in July 2012 at the Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, before adding a flagship store in New Bond Street later that summer. Founded in 1977 by Roy Raymond, Victoria’s Secret is the largest American retailer of lingerie and has singled out an expansion into the UK as one of its key focuses for strengthening the brand on an international scale.
