TECH-LOVERS can find all the latest kit in time for Christmas after a new store opened its doors at a shopping centre.

Store Topia has launched its first store at Churchill Square in Brighton after previously running on internet site Ebay.

The retailer aims to meet the needs of everyone who loves the latest nerdy gadgets, games consoles and mobile phone gimbals.

Bosses at Churchill Square have welcomed the retailer, and say it prides itself on offering the best tech products on the market.

The Argus:

They hope it is a sign of a new business bucking the trend of nationwide store closures and a big switch to online shopping.

And with just six shopping days left, there may yet be some time for Santa to fill some festive stockings.

Shoppers fears over future of Debenhams

Store Topia owner Abs Mechial said: “We are thrilled to open our flagship store in Churchill Square.

“Our eBay store was warmly welcome by the people of Brighton, and we’re sure they will show our new store the same dedication.

The Argus:

“By opening just in time for Christmas, we’re sure we can help a lot of shoppers tick off items on the Christmas wish list.”

Earlier this year, major retailer JD Sports moved one door down at Churchill Square to occupy a more prominent spot at the shopping centre.

The fashion and sports brand replaced the former BHS Homestore which closed in 2015 and which was then replaced by collapsed retailer Dorothy Perkins and Burton Menswear.

The Argus:

Earlier this year Levi's opened a larger store and took over space at the former Accessorize store.

But the announcement of the nationwide closures of Topshop and Debenhams has added some gloom to the retail market.

Both stores currently still occupy major spots at Churchill Square.

The Argus:

Store Topia says its Churchill Square shop is its first in the country and its “flagship”.

It opened on December 18.

Churchill Square centre director Mark Buchanan-Smith said: “We’re very impressed with the quality of what Store Topia has to offer, and we are delighted to welcome them to the centre.

“It’s been a difficult year, but we’re confident that this is the first of many great things to come for Churchill Square over the next few months, now that 2020 is coming to a close.”
