Peek & Cloppenburg is returning to the Belgian market: the German fashion retailer will be an anchor store of the newly renovated Westland Shopping Center in Brussels.

 

Anchor store

The return of 'P&C' to the Belgian retail market will happen this autumn, as the German fashion department store will become one of the cornerstones of the new Westland, manager AG Real Estate claims. The new store will measure over 4,000 sqm over two floors and will find a place in the shopping centre's central part. The fashion range will consist mainly of premium brands like Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger, with both men's and women's collections.

 

The renovations at Westland Shopping Center have been ongoing since 2019, adding two extensions to bring the total surface to 50,000 sqm. AG Real Estate's Astrid Flamand calls the arrival of Peek & Cloppenburg the "perfect complement" to the current offer, as it fits in neatly with Westland's new identity.

 

Peek & Cloppenburg's last Belgian store - up till now - closed its doors in 2019: the chain had to close its store on Antwerp's main shopping street Meir because it had become too expensive - despite it still realising a very good turnover. P&C currently operates some 150 stores in sixteen European countries, selling over 300 fashion brands.
