Debenhams to Open Flagship Store

British clothing chain Debenhams will open a three-story flagship store in the Aviapark shopping center — Russia's largest — on Moscow's Leningradsky Prospekt, in which billionaire Arkady Rotenberg is a major investor.

Amma Development plans to open the center for business in late 2014.

Debenhams' Russian franchise will take up 8,400 of Aviapark's 225,000 square meters of rental space, Kommersant reported Thursday.

The company retails clothes under its own label to a mid-range clientele in Russia partnering with cosmetics and perfume company Rive Gauche.

Debenhams opened in Russia in 2006 but shut down due to insufficient profits in 2008. They now have a single Russian location in Moscow's Mega Belaya Dacha mall.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
