Lingerie retailer Victoria’s Secret is to open in West Quay shopping centre, the first on the South Coast.
Work on the store will begin next week, and it is due to open in November.
The shop will take up the 13,000 sq ft space which was occupied by Miss Selfridge, Burton, Wallis, Evans and Dorothy Perkins until last month, when their lease expired. It will be the 11th Victoria’s Secret to open in the UK, following the opening of stores in London, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham and various UK airports.
Victoria’s Secret is the biggest US lingerie retailer, and has more than 1,000 stores across the world. It’s first store opened in San Fransisco in 1977.
Models who have represented the chain, as Victoria Secrets ‘Angels’ include Heidi Klum, Claudia Schiffer, Miranda Kerr, Tyra Banks, Karlie Kloss and Rosie Huntingon-Wiley.
