H & M is heading to town, with work underway on the latest stage of the £6m redevelopment of Oxford’s Clarendon shopping centre.
The former Currys Digital shop is set to be replaced by a three-storey H & M, with preparatory work for demolition now underway at the Shoe Lane entrance of the shopping centre
Centre managers Lothbury say construction of the new H & M store will start in January at the beginning of next year, with the shop then due to open in early 2014.
Director Adam Smith said: “We are confident that H&M’s presence will bring in a lot of additional shoppers.
Following the redevelopment, the Clarendon Centre will grow in size by 10 per cent.
There are also plans to expand the Westgate shopping centre and replace the multi-storey car park by 2017, with hopes John Lewis will be among the new shops moving to Oxford.
