Next and H&M have signed up to open new stores in Hounslow town centre in Greater London, taking over a former Woolworth’s.
The two new stores, located in the Treaty Centre, will comprise 26,000 sq ft each, with two levels and dual-frontage. The Next store will feature a coffee shop alongside the full men’s, women’s, children’s and home range.
Asset management group Quidnet Capital said the two would take the place of a former Woolworth store, which has been vacant since the retailer entered administration in 2009.
A planning application has been submitted to Hounslow Council this week for work to begin.
Quidnet partnet Tony Yiannakis said; “We have worked incredibly hard over the past 18 months to bring Next and H&M to the Treaty Centre and are very excited about how this will bring new life and prosperity to the high street.
“Key to attracting these high quality retailers has been the vision to transform the run down former Woolworth building into modern retail space. We look forward to working with Hounslow Council to get the planning permission agreed so that construction work can start in the new year and realise what will be a major first step in the rejuvenation of Hounslow Town Centre.”
