Manchester fashion retailer N Brown Group has announced plans to open up to 20 new stores in the coming months.
The firm has appointed a property acquisitions manager to oversee the expansion programme for its Simply Be and Jacomo brands.
Guy Price, who previously worked for Asda, said his team are currently looking for locstions which will be suitable to house the stores, which will target male and female customers.
He added: “Demand from our customers for stores is high and having a retail presence helps to support the wider business.”
Simply Be and Jacamo currently have nine outlets across the country, including recent store launches at Leeds’ White Rose shopping centre and Westfield shopping centre in Derby.
Simply Be stocks lingerie brands including Gok Wan, Gossard, Pour Moi? and Splendour, while Jacamo offers underwear from Levi’s and Southbay.
