It's a done deal for the AG Real Estate teams! The German company Peek & Cloppenburg, with its headquarter in Düsseldorf, confirms its move into the heart of the new Westland Shopping Centre, in Anderlecht.
The German multi-brand fashion retailer, founded in Düsseldorf in 1901, is making a comeback in Belgium after years of absence. The fashion retailer runs around 150 stores in 16 European countries and employs around 15,000 people.
“We are looking forward to being back in Belgium by autumn 2022. The renewed Westland Shopping Centre in Anderlecht is a great opportunity to attract new customers to Peek & Cloppenburg”, says Dr. Stephan Fanderl, member of Peek & Cloppenburg’s management board and responsible for sales.
With this new arrival, Westland is pleased to offer its customers a new internationally successful multi-label fashion retailer. The new Peek & Cloppenburg Fashion store for men and women will be one of the cornerstones of the shopping centre's new retail project. The store will offer a wide range of clothing, shoes and accessories from international brands like Hugo Boss, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein as well as exclusive labels by P&C. The sales area will cover two floors in a unit of more than 4,000 m² located in the central section of the shopping centre.
Readers may remember that the centre has been undergoing a major technical and aesthetic refurbishment since 2019. Two extensions have been added, expanding the centre to more than 50,000 m². This major project aims to make the centre more attractive, with a customer focus based on the theme "Live, Shop, Play", and to expand its retail offering to maintain its dominant position in the west of the Brussels Region.
Astrid Flamand, Senior Transaction & Development Manager - Retail at AG Real Estate, in charge of the redevelopment of Westland Shopping, confirms: “We are very excited about this partnership with Peek & Cloppenburg, which will perfectly complement our shopping centre's retail offering, and will certainly delight our existing customers while enticing new ones attracted by this multi-brand concept. We are firmly convinced that this brand is a perfect match for the Westland Shopping centre's new identity." »
AG Real Estate is delighted with this transaction, for which it was co-exclusively assisted by Cushman & Wakefield and CBRE.
