House of Fraser to anchor Chester Northgate
The department store chain has signed an agreement to open a new 100,000 square foot store which will include a large health and beauty department and a rooftop restaurant with views over Chester’s racecourse.
Chester Northgate will also offer a four-star Crowne Plaza hotel, a six-screen Picturehouse cinema, around 70 stores, cafés and restaurants, more than 70 homes, and the city’s largest car park.
Frank Slevin, executive chairman of House of Fraser, said: “Chester is an exciting location for us, being at the centre of a thriving regional economy.
“The new store clearly cements our commitment to and vision for the future growth of House of Fraser. The growth of our store portfolio and the further development of House of Fraser’s multichannel offer provides solid foundations for the on-going transformation of the business, ultimately driving a great customer experience.”
Construction for the scheme will be in three phases with the whole development due for completion in late 2021.
