NEW Look has announced it is opening a new store in the city centre next month.

The fashion retailer will open a 5200sq ft store in the old Mothercare unit on the Lower Mall in Churchill Square shopping centre in Brighton on June 10.

The shop will house womenswear, the 915 girls fashion and the brand’s popular accessory and shoe collections.

It comes after New Look announced its store in Western Road would be closed for good earlier this year, amid the third national lockdown.

A spokesman for the retailer said: “We are excited to be opening our brand new store in Churchill Square on June 10.

“It’s a great location, right in the heart of Brighton, and we look forward to inviting our new and loyal customers to shop our latest ranges.”

Mark Buchanan-Smith, centre director at Churchill Square, said: “We’re delighted that New Look has chosen Churchill Square for its new Brighton store.

“We’re sure it’ll be very well received by our customers.

“Since we reopened in April it has been great to see the shoppers breathing life back into the city.

“We’re all geared up for a very positive summer and things are looking very promising for the rest of 2021.”
