The paramount shopping locations in Birmingham, Bullring & Grand Central, are adding to their already diverse store range, with new store fronts for Zara, Clarks, and Swatch.

Hammerson, a real estate developer, owns the Bullring & Grand Central, which is the sixth largest shopping center in the UK, covering an area of 163,000 square meters.

The global fashion label Zara, managed by Inditex, will occupy the top level, marking the full revamp of the previously held Debenhams site.

This is next to a neighboring two-level section at the higher floor, generating more than 51,000 square feet of retail area that will significantly boost Zara's visibility in Birmingham.

The reaffirmed pledge came after the inaugurations of Bershka and Pull&Bear, brands owned by Inditex, at the Bullring in 2023, marking a first for the region.

Swatch, a Swiss watch company, is opening its first independent shop in Birmingham. The shop, nestled on Link Street, spans 800 square feet and will showcase a variety of 500 distinct watch models.

The global shoe company, Clarks, is moving its location within the Bullring to launch its "modern workshop" idea, taking over a new 4,500 square feet space on the ground floor.

Towards the end of 2023, M&S introduced a new store that spans 65,000 square feet, located underneath the newly opened Zara space at the shopping mall.

Toby Tait, the director of asset management at Hammerson, stated that through the strategic repositioning of Bullring & Grand Central, they've successfully introduced important brands, innovative ideas, and events to the location. Consequently, this has boosted customer traffic and increased annual sales for their tenants, and they keep drawing top-tier brands as partners.
