Azeem An­sari, di­rec­tor of Bur­rows & Hare, said: “While Birm­ing­ham may be called the Sec­ond City, we see it as the only place to be right now. With the broader in­vest­ment and big­ger com­pa­nies look­ing at mov­ing to the city, we couldn’t be hap­pier to be join­ing at such an ex­cit­ing time.

“We look for­ward to meet­ing our new cus­tomers at the Mail­box.”

David Par­doe, head of mar­ket­ing at the Mail­box, added: “We know that our cus­tomers are in­ter­ested in high-end menswear and life­style pieces and the open­ing of Bur­rows & Hare fur­ther ce­ments our po­si­tion as a must-visit des­ti­na­tion for fash­ion and ac­ces­sories here in the city. We have no doubt the store will prove hugely pop­u­lar with our vis­i­tors.”

The Mail­box is also home to fash­ion names in­clud­ing Har­vey Ni­chols, Tommy Hil­figer, Calvin Klein Un­der­wear and Hugo Boss.
