My retail news correspondent colleague Annabel Dixon has written a good story in this Saturday's magazine about Westfield's success just now in securing new retailers at the Olympics site.
I've asked her to do a guest blog here about it all - so you read it here first:
Annabel writes: Speculation has been mounting recently over who will be the first retailers to sign at Westfield's Stratford City shopping centre since John Lewis and Marks & Spencer were confirmed as anchor tenants back in 2006.
The Australian developer has been locked in leasing meetings at the recent round of industry conferences, including the BCSC conference in Manchester, and there are a growing number of tours of the site by retailers and their agents.
There is no doubt that the ruckus over service charges at Westfield London left a nasty taste in retailers' mouths. However, major brands, including US fashion brand Forever 21, budget fashion retailer Primark, health and beauty chain Boots, newsagents WHSmiths and high street fashion retailers H&M and Next, are all edging closer and closer to signing on the dotted line.
