Several new brands and retailers are confirmed to open at Highcross in the next few months as Hammerson's Leicester scheme strengthens both its retail and catering offer

Patisserie Valerie, Pizza Express, Aunty Anne’s Pretzels and Millie’s Cookies are all set to open at the centre during the first half 2012, with Millie’s Cookies taking a second unit within the centre.

Jo Tallack, Highcross’ general manager, said: “We’re constantly looking at ways to strengthen Highcross’ offering, and we’re really pleased to announce that several new brands to the city - Simply Be, Patisserie Valerie and Aunty Anne’s Pretzels - will be adding to the centre’s retail mix during 2012.

Since opening in 2008, Highcross has bought more than 70 new brands and restaurants to Leicester, including the iconic John Lewis, Zara, All Saints, Carluccio’s and Café Rouge.
