Apple is among a number of retailers to have signed or upsized at Bromley shopping centre The Glades.

The technology giant opened at the centre at the weekend. It will be joined by footwear specialist Sole Trader which will open a 2,017 sq ft store.

Fashion retailer Phase Eight has upsized into a new store more than treble the size of its previous unit.

Jonathan Ainsley, asset management director for Capital Shopping Centres, which owns the scheme, said: “These lettings form part of our vision to make The Glades a one stop shopping destination which perfectly meets the needs of the affluent catchment it serves with an offer that comprises quality and choice.

“The Glades has a particularly strong demographic which will be well served by these high-end brands.”
