Nottingham's Victoria Centre will see the opening of yet another big retailer in the coming months. The shopping centre announced Starbucks as the latest brand to join the premises.

This will be the fourth Starbucks in Nottingham city centre, with three already present in Old Market Square, on Upper Parliament Street, and on Station Street. A spokesperson for Victoria Centre said: "We can confirm that Starbucks is joining the line-up of exciting food and beverage on offer here at Victoria Centre.

"We’re not able to share any more details at this time, but we’ll look forward to updating shoppers in the near future." The unit is located on the upper mall, opposite from Ed's Easy Diner and Miniso.

The space was previously occupied by Clean Cut Kitchen, an independent health bar and café. This closed in March 2022 and is now located on Pelham Street.

The opening comes as two other retail giants have joined Victoria Centre in recent months. H&M relocated to the lower mall from its Lister Gate location on May 2, while Levi's also relocated its Clumber Street store to the lower mall.

The international coffee chain aims to open 100 new stores across the UK this year, with 1,168 locations already in place. The project is estimated at £30million, with the new branches being a mixture of company-operated and franchised stores, reports the Mirror.

It is unclear whether there will be any more branches opened across Nottinghamshire as part of the project. A number of stores will open across Birmingham, Manchester, and London, among other locations.
