H&M due to move into former Beales store in King’s Lynn’s Vancouver Quarter, says report
Work on redeveloping a landmark retail site in King's Lynn will start this summer.
Beales closed its department store in the Vancouver Quarter, with the loss of around 40 jobs, last August.
The chain said it had taken the decision not to renew its lease when it expired.
Now a report to West Norfolk councillors says that redevelopment of the site is due to begin in August.
It says that the work is expected to take 47 weeks to cpmplete and the premises will be handed over to retailer H&M in July or August of next year.
