Patisserie Valerie has grown its partnership with Debenhams to 19 sites and grown its total portfolio beyond the 150 mark.

The Luke Johnson chaired group will open its latest store in the Debenhams in Liverpool next Tuesday.

It follows recent openings in stores in Wigan and Glasgow – the latter being its fifth site in the city.

The Liverpool opening will take the Patisserie Valerie estate to 151 sites.

The group believes there is ultimately the scope to open up to 50 units with Debenhams.
