Global fashion brand confirmed for former Debenhams unit in Glasgow


GLASGOW retail and leisure destination Silverburn has confirmed Zara will move into the former Debenhams unit, making it one of the brand’s largest in Scotland and supporting 200 jobs locally.

This highly anticipated announcement will see Zara relocate from its existing home near Next and Boots to a much larger store in the middle of the centre.

Spanning 47,000 sq ft over two floors which is twice the size of their current Silverburn store, the unit will be transformed with a new façade and flagship design while also featuring Zara’s latest store concept and integrated online services.

As one of the world’s biggest fashion brands, Zara’s designers respond instinctively to their customers’ changing needs, reacting to the latest trends and constant feedback to deliver new ideas for everyone in the right place and at the right moment.

The news is a game-changer for Silverburn, which has seen a raft of new retailers take space over recent months, further reinforcing its position as Glasgow and Scotland’s leading retail and leisure destination.

Prominent brands that have recently opened at Silverburn include AllSaints and Polestar, while Mango is set to open its doors this summer which will further strengthen the fashion offer. Kingpin Bowling is also joining the line-up later this year, bolstering Silverburn’s leisure offer.

David Pierotti, General Manager of Silverburn, said: “This long-awaited announcement ushers in a new chapter for Silverburn and reaffirms our position as a premier destination for brands seeking exceptional spaces to showcase their offerings.

“Silverburn is on a roll, and the team is eager for what’s to come. Last year, we achieved a record footfall of over 15 million visitors. With our latest additions and a packed schedule of family-friendly events, 2024 is set to be another fantastic year.”
