 House of Fraser, Deansgate
House of Fraser, Deansgate

The Grade II listed building LinkExternal link was built in 1939, by J. S.Beaumont, as an extension to the Kendal Milnes store built in 1873 across Deansgate. It was purchased by Harrods in 1919, and was called Harrods for a period in the 1920s, but the name swiftly reverted to Kendal Milne following protests from customers and staff. The Harrods group, along was taken over by House of Fraser in 1959 but the store continued trading as Kendals until 2005, when, after extensive refurbishment, the store was renamed House of Fraser Manchester. In August 2018 the financially troubled House of Fraser was bought for 90m by Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley. Along with stores in Edinburgh, Hull and Swindon the Manchester store was due to close in January 2019 but a deal was struck with the landlord and it will be staying open.
