Sports retailer will take over ex Topshop Unit
Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield has announced that JD Sports has signed a ten year lease on a second store at Westfield Stratford City, taking over the former Topshop unit.
The new 31,000 sq.ft store will more than quadruple the space occupied by the brand at the centre, which will continue trading in its current unit in addition to the new store.
Keith Mabbett, director of leasing UK/Italy at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, said: “We have been working closely with JD Sports to identify the best space to meet their growing needs to create a flagship store. The expansion demonstrates the success of JD Sports with high demand for the brand and the increasing trend for retailers stores to create larger footprints at our centres.”
Warren Thompson, group head of acquisitions, JD Sports commented: “We are excited to deliver our new flagship store within Westfield Stratford City, one of our key shopping centre locations in UK. JD will bring the very latest sports fashion to our consumers in our very latest flagship store concept.”
