Upsized Centre:MK flagship for River Island

8th March 2018

River Island has opened an upsized 1,858 sq m (20,000 sq ft) regional flagship store at Centre:MK in Milton Keynes.

The store was designed by the retailer’s in-store team to reflect its latest format and shop-fit, with the introduction of new features tailored to the site. It is located at 40-42 Midsummer Arcade, next to a branch of JD Sports.

“Centre: MK is one of our top performing locations in the UK. Our decision to upsize here was an easy one to make following the impressive amount of investment at the destination, in addition to the centre’s strong surrounding catchment and excellent line-up of neighbouring brands,” says a River Island spokesman.

“This exciting flagship is a fantastic addition to our retail line-up,” says asset manager Ed Sellick on behalf of Centre: MK joint owners Hermes Investment Management and AustralianSuper. “The store will boost our offering of affordable on-trend fashion, which is set to be further enhance over the next 12 months, and will help ensure we continue to be the retail and leisure destination of choice in the region.”
