Sandro, the aspirational Parisian brand, will take a 564 sq ft store, situated on County Arcade in the Grade II* listed Victorian building. Having gained a loyal following across the globe, Sandro has more than 452 stores worldwide, and with just 24 across the UK, its presence at Victoria Quarter will be an integral part of the brand’s global expansion, when its store opens later this year.
