Jack Wills is among the retailers that has signed up to join Silverburn shopping centre in Glasgow, while Ann Summers will open in Southampton at Westquay shopping centre later this year.

David Atkins, Hammerson chief executive said: “We have had numerous conversations with our retailers post the EU referendum, and the majority remain committed to delivering their expansion plans.

“While the activity over the past week doesn’t provide a perfect indicator on future demand it does demonstrate initial resilience in the retail sector post the Brexit decision and is evidence that investment in prime retail locations is still a priority for brands.”

The other leases include Danish homeware firm Flying Tiger Copenhagen, Italian cosmetic brand Kiko Milano, Burrito bar Barburrito, food retailer Food Warehouse and carpet store Tapi.
