Department store group, James Beattie, is to open a new store in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

The UK-based company, which has its head office in Wolverhampton, has already begun fitting out the store in the Kingsgate Shopping Centre.

It will sit alongside other shops such as Next, JJB Sports and TK Maxx and 41 other smaller units. It is due to open on March 1 next year.

A spokesman said the Kingsgate Centre has been designed to meet the needs of modern retailers and address the shortage of large retail units in the town.

But the Yorkshire store is not the only new store on the horizon for the growing retail group.

A new Beatties store in Birmingham city centre's Corporation Street will open its doors on September 1.
