Littlewoods Are Coming to Coventry

Catalogue firm Littlewoods has confirmed it is to open a store in Coventry next month.

And there is speculation that the C&A store in the Lower Precinct could be bought by the chain.

It will have a Littlewoods Catalogue Discount Store (LCDS) on the Central Six shopping park, off Warwick Road, opening on August 17.

A Littlewoods spokeswoman said:

“It will be selling products from the Littlewoods catalogue at a reduced price. But it will not be the full range we sell at the Littlewoods stores.

”They are not seconds and there is nothing wrong with the goods – they will be the ones from the catalogue we have not been able to sell. They are this year’s range.”

And the city could also be getting a version of the more upmarket Littlewoods department store, as the company is negotiating to take over some of the C&A stores set to close next year.

The spokeswoman added:

“We have said we are looking at the C&A stores where we do not have a presence in the High Street. “

Littlewoods said it was too early to talk about individual sites. But Coventry is one of the cities that fits the mould of having a C&A scheduled for closure and no Littlewoods in the city centre.
