Harrods announces opening date for new Bristol store on Cribbs Causeway

Harrods has announced when they hope to open its much-anticipated new Bristol store.

The exclusive London retailer, which opened its iconic flagship Knightsbridge store in 1849, opens a branch of H beauty on the Cribbs Causeway in the unit formerly home to the British Home Stores (BHS).

Harrods began rolling out its beauty brand in 2020 with two successful launches at the Lakeside retail center in Essex and centers: mk in Milton Keynes, as part of a mission to take the Harrods experience outside of London.

Towards the end of last year a branch was added in Edinburgh and there are also plans to open in Gatesheads Metrocentre this year in addition to the new Bristol location.

Cribbs Causeway’s H beauty shop will showcase “iconic heritage brands with groundbreaking newcomers and exclusive new launches” to create a “beauty space”.

The store will offer ‘playtables’, where customers can try out products, along with skin care and quick blow-drying stations. There will even be a sumptuous champagne bar where shoppers can enjoy a respite and a glass of bubbly.

The openings will bring the national H-beauty footprint to over 127,000 sq ft of retail space, while creating hundreds of new jobs.

Annalize Fard, Director of Home and Beauty at Harrods, said: “This is a hugely important and exciting milestone for Harrods as we continue with our ambitious plans to expand our domestic footprint through H beauty.

“The incredible response we’ve had to our first two H-beauty shop openings reflects not only the continued demand for exceptional, high-quality retail experiences outside London, but also the passion for beauty that exists among the customers we serve in these regions.

“We have no doubt that we will see a similar reaction at fantastic destinations we take to H beauty.

“We are so excited to continue to build beauty communities around these new cities, each with their own unique beauty cultures, as well as to hire beauty lovers across each community to represent the H beauty brand.”

When does it open?

Tension over the store’s arrival rose after Harrods signs went up warning customers that it “will open soon”.

And a spokesman for the retailer has now confirmed that the store’s launch is only a few months away.

They said: “H beauty Bristol opens in spring 2022.”
