The new concept stores occupy a total of 11,000 square feet of retail space at the recently opened terminal, with the largest airside unit consisting of over 4,800 square feet.

Each store will sell a range of reading materials, including the retailer's 'Bookazines, as well as confectionery, snacks, drinks and travel accessories.

All of the stores feature new store layouts that include extended payment zones with self-service checkouts and a contactless payment option.

It also occupies over 700 retail units in airports, railway stations, hospitals and motorway service areas and more than 600 high street stores.
