The flagship BHS site on Oxford Street will close its doors to the public for the last time at end of trading this Saturday (13 August) following a prolonged period of turbulence and decline for the British retailer.
BHS sold the lease for the plot to Oxford & City Holdings on April 1 in a deal that valued it at around £55m. Initially the retailer planned to keep the store open until the end of the year, but a new lease agreement has brought the end date forward.
Polish retailer LPP (Lubianiec Piechocki i Partnerzy) is taking more than 106,000 sq ft of the site across the ground, first and second floors. It trades under the fashion name Reserved.
All other BHS sites are due to close by August 20.
