Victoria’s Secret to open new store in Manchester’s Arndale

Victoria’s Secret’s Cardiff store.

Victoria’s Secret will open a 9,750ft2 in Manchester Arndale early next year, the retailer’s eighth UK store outside London.

The shop will provide space for Victoria’s Secret and Victoria’s Secret Pink to trade side-by-side, M&G Real Estate and shopping centre giant Intu said.

Victoria’s Secret will open in unit 10, the former Guess store, while Victoria’s Secret PINK is due to take over units 11 and 12, the former Coast and Bose stores.

Colin Flinn, regional managing director at Intu, said: “Welcoming such a sought after international name such as Victoria’s Secret to Manchester Arndale is hugely positive.

“As retailers continue to assess their portfolios to ensure they are in the most prominent shopping hotspots, Victoria’s Secret, as with Paul Smith, put Manchester city centre firmly on its list.”

The Manchester store is one of 30 Victoria’s Secret stores set to open in the UK in 2017.

Earlier this year, Victoria’s Secret launched a shop in Brighton and plans to open a store in Milton Keynes this Autumn.
