A SHOPPING centre boss has revealed what will replace a popular make-up shop.

Mark Buchanan-Smith, centre director for Churchill Square in Brighton, spoke out on what would fill the empty unit left by Monsoon Accessorize.

The store shut on Saturday and slashed its prices by up to 70 per cent as it approached its final day of trading.

Signs in the windows directed loyal customers to their next nearest store in Montague Street, Worthing.

The Argus:

But it is now known what will take the place of the store.

Mr Buchanan-Smith said: "While we confirmed that Monsoon Accessorize will be closing this month, that was to facilitate the relocation and upsizing of Levi’s."

He also said efforts would be made to return Accessorize to the shopping centre.

He said: "Discussions are continuing to progress to retain Accessorize at the shopping centre and further announcements on this will be made in due course."
