Dutch fashion retailer The Sting is poised to pull out of its Westfield Stratford store.

The retailer, which has two stores in the UK, has put the lease for its 16,100 sq ft store in the east London shopping centre up for tender.

However, it is understood The Sting has no plans to exit its remaining UK store, the 33,875 sq ft flagship on the site of Tower Records’ former famous London store on Regent Street.

The Sting has 80 stores across the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium and operates more than 30 specialist brands through a shop-in-a-shop format.

Harper Dennis Hobbs advises The Sting.
