H&M takes the remaining space in the former BHS unit alongside the 25,000 sq ft Next store.

Mike Riley, CEO of New Frontier Properties, commented:

“H&M is an exciting new addition to the centre, and to the town generally, demonstrating Burton’s growing appeal to national retailers.”

The letting activity follows New Frontier Properties’ continued drive to optimise its tenant mix across all three of its dominant retail centres located in Burton upon Trent, Blackpool and Middlesbrough.
