SHIFTING SITES: Harvey Nichols’ 12-year-old Birmingham store will relocate and expand in size under new plans. The new store will be situated in the Mailbox, a luxury shopping destination area surrounding the site of the old Royal Mail sorting office.
It will more than double in size to over 45,000 square feet and the retail space will be over six meters in height to make the most of natural daylight. Departments currently performing beyond expectations such as men’s wear and personal shopping will be rewarded with increased space allocation, whilst the store will also consider incorporating a more sophisticated hospitality offer.
Architecture firm Stanton Williams is behind the design of the new shop. An opening date is yet to be announced.
