Earlier this year, electronics brand Maplin closed 200 stores after it went into administration.

This included the one in St John's Road, Battersea.

But now a new business is set to move into the empty shop.

In October, a planning application was submitted to bring Danish company 'Flying Tiger Copenhagen' to the area.

Now those plans have been approved.

But what exactly does the company with nearly 900 stores across the world sell?

Well according to its website, it likes to "put smiles on peoples' faces."

"Flying Tiger Copenhagen traces its roots back to a stall at a flea market in Denmark where founder Lennart Lajboschitz sold umbrellas with his wife Suz," a message read.

"Then, in 1988, Lennart and Suz Lajboschitz opened their first brick-and-mortar store in a local neighbourhood of Copenhagen. Its name was Zebra, and it sold umbrellas and sunglasses and socks and surplus goods.

"We still believe that relationships and experiences are what make people happy. And ultimately happiness is what we want to give to our customers.

"Now, not even 25 years later, we are a variety retail concept with 863 stores across 3 continents and 30 countries."

There is no indication yet of when the store will officially open.
