On the fashion side of things, Replay, an Italian fashion brand, has a ground floor store which measures over 1,000 sq ft. However, Moss, a men’s formalwear retailer, will open a store five times larger.
Meanwhile, the Merrion Centre is preparing for the arrival of an authentic Far East food store. The Sing Kee Chinese supermarket and cafe will open on 23 July, creating 20 jobs and giving Woodhouse Lane a cultural boost.
Although the food is foreign, the business is local. Sing Kee has existing stores in Leeds and Bradford. The family-run business has been supplying Leeds with Chinese food for nearly 20 years.
