Two new stores are on the way to Highcross in Le­ices­ter

Hinckley Times - - LETTERS -

SHOP­PERS look­ing for that per­fect Christ­mas gift might be able to find it in two new stores com­ing to Le­ices­ter’s Highcross.

Yan­kee Can­dle will open its first stand­alone shop in the shop­ping cen­tre, while Bri­tish tea spe­cial­ist Whit­tard will of­fer hot drinks prod­ucts with a store, too.

Mall bosses hope the new stores will be ready and open for the fes­tive rush.

Com­mer­cial di­rec­tor of Ham­mer­son, the com­pany be­hind Highross, Iain Mitchell, said: “The news, cou­pled with re­cent de­ci­sions from JD Sports and Zara to up­size, re­flects the strength of the cen­tre and the city of Le­ices­ter.”

He also added that with a “sig­nif­i­cant re­con­fig­u­ra­tion” tak­ing place at Highcross it is hoped it will “re­main the des­ti­na­tion of choice in the re­gion for both oc­cu­piers and shop­pers”.

In the past year fash­ion re­tailer QUIZ, Viet­namese restau­rant Pho and leisure op­er­a­tor Tree­top Ad­ven­ture Golf have all signed up to de­but in Le­ices­ter.

Both Zara and JD Sports have also cho­sen to move to big­ger stores.

Whit­tard will open a 377 sq ft store next to L’Oc­c­i­tane and Are­gento.
