National fashion retailer Peacocks is opening a store at 16-24 White Lion Square, Hatfield.

Peacocks has signed a lease on the store, which has over 7,000sq ft of retail space, and will take possession in September.

The store is expected to open to the public later this year.

Councillor John Dean, leader of Welwyn Hatfield Council, said: “We are very pleased a national retailer is investing in this pivotal space in White Lion Square.

“In addition to improving the mix of shops in this location, the opening of Peacocks will give added confidence to other businesses considering coming to Hatfield and will bring jobs that will benefit the whole borough.”

Welwyn Hatfield Council will retain the first floor of the property to convert into apartments.
