River Island, which is located on the first floor of the Centre in the upper west mall has expanded to create a 10,500 sq ft unit.

The extra space will allow the fashion retailer to stock a full children’s range alongside a broader in-store offer.

Argento, has extended into an adjacent unit and will double in size from 1,100 sq ft to 2,150 sq ft.

The brand has also invested in a store refit to coincide with their expansion.
