Some new stores have been announced for the Glades in Bromley.

I have to confess I don’t know any of them but avid shoppers may well do. They are:

  • Tessuti
  • House UK
  • Colette by Collette Hayman
  • Orange Theory Fitness

The Glades seems to be doing well as not suffering some of the hardships of other shopping centres. Today the BBC reported that 200 are “in crises” and at risk of administration.

A mixture of high rents, sharply increased business rates introduced by Chancellor Philip Hammond last year (which he now wants to reverse given the damage), online competition and a stuttering economy have all battered the sector.
