Budget fashion retailer TK Maxx opened its new store on the Upper Mall yesterday (Thursday) with all its staff from its now closed store in Bridge Street transferring to the new outlet.

A spokesman for the Queensgate shopping centre was not available to comment on the arrival of the two retailers.

But the openings come hot on the heels of announcements by department store John Lewis and fashion retailer Next that they were closing their stores in the Queensgate centre.

Neither store reopened when the lockdown restrictions were eased on April 12.
