Hammerson avoids being "delighted" with something (now banned from its press releases?)


"Highcross [Hammerson's shopping centre in Leicester - which we have no reason to criticise, by the way] enters the Christmas season with 12,000 sq ft of new retailers signed up.

"... Sheila King, Hammerson director group retail leasing, commented:
"These new brands provide real strength in depth across our retail mix at Highcross, offering specialist fashion retailing, high end entertainment and fine art to our consumers." [Sheila completely avoids being 'delighted'!]
*The Cameron-Clegg coalition
is, er, on the right.
"Bidwell Webber De Pons* and Lunson Mitchenall acted on behalf of Hammerson.

UPDATE: We were wrong - Hammerson is "delighted"

Link to Hammerson's Storefront

"Hammerson is delighted to announce that leading international fashion retailer Forever 21* is to open a 53,000 sq ft store at Bullring [sic] Birmingham, its first in the UK. 
* Link to [Daily Mail] [The Guardian]

"Lawrence Hutchings, Hammerson Managing Director UK Retail said:
"Forever 21's decision to open their first store in Europe at Bullring [sic] reflects both the centre's and the city's assertion that Forever 21, a proven success worldwide, will flourish at the centre. This is on the back of unprecedented like-for-like sales growth at the scheme over the course of the last 24 months."


Not to mention:
