Oasis opens first store in Worcester

Mar 6, 2018

Oasis has launched its first-ever standalone store in Worcester, carrying the latest fashion must-haves.


The 1,480 sq ft store is located in Crowngate’s Chapel Walk, and joins other fashion chains like Bonmarché, Debenhams, House of Fraser, New Look, Primark and Phase Eight.

The signing is part of a flurry of lettings activity at the centre, with A Write Card, First Class Turkish Barbers, Spa Books and Sundance Fair Trade signing up for space at Crowngate Shopping Centre.

Nicole Campbell, asset manager at The Crown Estate, commented: “Following the excitement of our 25th birthday in 2017, I am delighted that we are attracting leading UK retailers, like Oasis, to the city and that we continue to be the home of one-of-a-kind independents.

“It is this blend of big names and boutique brands which makes Worcester so special. Our strategy for Crowngate is to ensure we continue to carefully curate this mix of retail to ensure that Worcester remains an outstanding destination for local shoppers and tourists alike.”

Oasis and its sister brands, Warehouse and Coast, were put up for sale by its Icelandic bank Kaupthing in 2016, with several private equity firms and the Edinburgh Woollen Mill interested in the company. But the sale was called off last year after the only remaining bidder, Emerisque Brands, offered just £60m for the three brands.

Oasis has over 80 stores in the UK and Ireland and over 200 concessions hosted by Debenhams, Fenwick, House of Fraser, John Lewis and Outfit.
