Birmingham talks shop to boost city centre

Birmingham's retail sector is expecting a big year in 2015 as the city hopes to overtake Glasgow and Leeds as the top shopping city outside London. John Lewis will open a £35m store above New Street station; Selfridges is investing £20m in its store in the Bullring shopping centre; and Harvey Nichols is doubling its space in the Mailbox centre, which is undergoing a £50m revamp by its new owners Brockton Capital. Investor interest in Birmingham has been bolstered by a number of major infrastructure projects including the upgrade of New Street station and extensions to the city's Metro tram system.
