A MAJOR high street name is currently eyeing up a vacant space in the city centre. 

A planning application has been submitted to transform the former BHS building on Sauchiehall Street into a new retail unit. 

The retailer, who has not revealed their identity in documents submitted to Glasgow City Council, is showing "concrete interest" in reopening the store.

The planning documents read: “The tenant is a high quality and well-known high street retailer looking to occupy part of the overall property.”

The bidders are planning to open from 6am until midnight seven days per week, with no explanation on what goods will be sold. 

They hope to give the unit a new shopfront, a new entrance and a general repair of the facade.

The statement continues: “These modifications aspire to bring life back to an empty building which stands in a poor state of disrepair on one of Glasgow’s main retail destinations.”

British Homes Stores closed five years ago after operating from the city centre for more than 50 years. 

The application is yet to be approved or dismissed by Glasgow City Council planning chiefs.
