Lush is considering swooping on vacant Debenhams and House of Fraser stores following the success of its large store in Liverpool.

Speaking exclusively to Retail Week, the ethical beauty retailer’s chief executive and co-founder Mark Constantine revealed he was interested in opening more larger-format stores to better showcase Lush’s full range of products and services.

Its Liverpool flagship, which opened last March, spans three floors and includes experiential elements such as a spa, hair lab and perfume library.

Constantine said the 15,000 sq ft concept is “basically a department store” and sees scope to roll out the format into even bigger units.
