River Island opens upsized Milton Keynes store

High street fashion retailer River Island has opened an upsized store at Centre:mk in Milton Keynes.

Situated at 40-42 Midsummer Arcade next to JD Sports, the new regional flagship was designed by an in-house team to reflect the brand’s latest shop-fit.

The 20,000 square foot shop will stock the brand’s ranges of clothing, footwear and accessories for men and women.

Ashleigh Skinner from River Island said: “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.”

The River Island opening follows the launch of Footasylum’s dedicated womenswear store at 66 Midsummer Arcade last year. In addition, plans for a new 75,000 square foot Primark store were unveiled in the autumn which will be the single largest letting at Centre:mk for 25 years. New openings at the centre in the last 12 months include Pravins, Tessuti, Scotts, Acutis, Beauty Base, JD Sports and Molton Brown.

Centre:mk has undergone extensive investment by joint owners AustralianSuper and Hermes Investment Management, with £60 million of enhancements over the last two years. This includes the recently completed £10 million refurbishment of Sunset Walk.

Speaking on behalf of Hermes Investment Management and AustralianSuper, Ed Sellick said: “This exciting River Island flagship store is a fantastic addition to our retail line-up. The store will boost our offering of affordable on–trend fashion, which is set to be further enhanced over the next 12 months, and will help ensure we continue to be the retail and leisure destination of choice in the region.”
