Kendal’s to remain open

Manchester’s iconic Kendal’s department store is to remain open.

The store, which opened in 1832, was to have closed in January until agreement was reached between House of Fraser and the store’s landlord.

‘Today's announcement is fantastic news for the city. I am proud that the council has been able to play a constructive role in saving a real Manchester icon and hundreds of jobs,’ said Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council.

‘This demonstrates that when landlords, local authorities and retailers work together the outcomes can be outstanding. When working together we can make a real difference to the high street,’ said Mike Ashley, chief executive of House of Fraser parent company Sports Direct.
