Bicester Village to open 28 more shops

Bicester Village will gain 28 more shops and extra parking bays, after plans to demolish a nearby Tesco and petrol station were given the green light.

The outlet shopping village in Oxfordshire is to increase in size by 24% once the building work is completed, according to Buckingham Today. The new stores will bring its total to 158.

It will have an extra 55,900 sq ft of retail space, expanded road access, a new park-and-ride facility and a footpath to the train station.

Bicester Village attracts more than 6 million domestic and international shoppers each year. It is estimated that three out of every four Chinese visitors to the UK visit Bicester, where luxury brands and retailers including Agent Provocateur, Burberry, Chloe and Prada have outlet stores.

Scott Malkin, founder and chairman of property developer Value Retail, which operates the site, said he sees new opportunities to improve the shopping experience from the rise of online shopping. He also said he plans to extend VIP shopping services, such as hands-free shopping and valet parking.
