Heathrow T4 unveils retail upgrade

2 Nov 2009 by AndrewGough

Cath Kidston at London Heathrow Airport Terminal 4As part of the ongoing refurbishment of London Heathrow Terminal 4, the airport has announced several big name brands soon to join its growing retail portfolio.

A £200 million investment by airport operator BAA has attracted, among others, “quintessential” British fashion brands Cath Kidston and Jimmy Choo as well as Italian label Etro.

Harrods, which also recently opened at T4, has announced it is to bring Cavalli and Paul Smith to the terminal as standalone boutiques alongside concession stores such as Montblanc and Dunhill.

Delaware North, the company behind catering at Wembley Stadium and Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, is soon to open the 180-seat Dining Street Restaurant.

Other food and beverages outlets include the recently opened World of Whiskies and premium chocolatier Simply Chocolate, due to open by the end of the year.

At last week’s unveiling of the new T4 Skyteam facilities (see online news October 28), BAA’s chief operating officer Mike Brown said around £1bn a year was now being pumped into the terminal.

Mr Brown said BAA knew it had to “transform” T4 to improve the overall experience for all passengers passing through the building.
