The German chain applied to make a new shop front and signage for 31-33 Old George Mall, the vacant retail unit where Topshop used to be.

According to planning application documents, Deichmann owns the site.

The documents say the company is to "undertake a fit out" of the premises, and that the store should offer six full-time and four part-time positions.

Works to the site will include replacing the existing doors with new ‘frameless’ glass doors, with a powder coat finish for the new aluminium frames in grey matte, for "visual amenity".

The new signage will be the company's name in green illuminated LED letters.
