33% of local adults are 'looking forward' to visiting shops at Milton Keynes city centre again next Monday
All shops at centre:mk will fully re-opens on April 12, said the centre bosses today.
They commissioned a special survey, which showed more than one third of adults are excited about browsing the shops once again.
Shortly after the re-opening, Harrods will open up its H Beauty store in the former House of Fraser premises.
This will Harrods' biggest luxury beauty concept store to date, say centre:mk bosses. It will offer range of
amenities including a luxury coffee-to-cocktail bar, blow-dry bar and in-store beauty treatment facilities.
Other recent new arrivals that people has little chance to explore before lockdown include Hamleys, Dune, Lyons and Love.
There is also the Love Local Hub, a new pilot store of a national project created to help budding
retail entrepreneurs across the UK. The pop-up space, which acts as a showroom for 75 independents, will
continue to provide a stepping-stone for small local retailers in the area.
Kevin Duffy, centre director at centre:mk, said: “It’s great to be back and re-opening in such a strong position with a new concept from H Beauty focused on experience, at a time when experience is everything.
"Our guests will discover a great retail line up and exciting range of brands unmatched in the region which we are confident will give them the physical shopping ‘hit’ they’ve been craving over the last few months!”
