16 January 2024

We are delighted to announce that lifestyle, technology, and entertainment retailer Harvey Norman is coming to Merry Hill.

Harvey Norman Merry Hill will offer a selection of luxury furniture, including sofas, dining sets, as well as outdoor furniture. A range of homeware products will also be on offer, including a huge array of Home Appliances, Audio Visual, and Technology products.

With over 300 stores in eight countries across the globe, Harvey Norman Merry Hill bolsters the destination’s reputation as being a hub for well-renowned, international brands.

Harvey Norman will take a significant portion of the former Debenhams, where it will join experience and community-driven fitness operator, Xtrafit. Due to open in the summer, Xtrafit offer premium fitness at an accessible price point.

Jonathan Poole, Centre Manager at Merry Hill, said: “We’re delighted to share the news that global lifestyle, technology, and entertainment brand, Harvey Norman, are coming to Merry Hill. Alongside the UK debut from fitness operator XTRAFIT, Harvey Norman will occupy much of the former Debenhams space in a store experience unique to Merry Hill. 

“With a wide range of homewares, furniture and appliances, the store will have something for everyone, including cameras for budding photographers, kitchen equipment for foodies, and the latest big brand TVs, smartphones, consoles, and laptops, for tech enthusiasts. 

“The investment from this retail giant comes at an exciting time for the centre with 2024 promising further new additions to our exceptional range of over 175 stores and increasing leisure and restaurant offering. We’re continuing to evolve, so our visitors can enjoy everything they need under one roof, alongside a destination for eating, drinking and relaxing.” 

Katie Page, Harvey Norman CEO, said: “With its exceptional connectivity and a population around the same size as New Zealand – where we have 42 stores – it’s clear that the West Midlands represents a significant growth opportunity for Harvey Norman. We have been in the UK for many years with two stores in Northern Ireland, so we look forward to opening our new Flagship store in Merry Hill later this year.”
