Next and River Island are to debut at The Oracle, Reading.
As well as welcoming these new stores, Debenhams will undergo a full store refresh, the first phase of which has already completed, introducing two exciting new dining concepts, Franco Manca and The Real Greek to The Riverside.
Next will boast a 29,500 sq ft store in The Oracle. Becoming one of the centre’s predominant retailers, the space will allow the brand to showcase its full offer of fashion, home and accessories.
River Island will be located on Upper Mall, its new 11,500 sq ft unit will become an important flagship for the brand. The space allows River Island to implement its impressive and innovative fit-out and concepts, which have proved popular with customers across the UK.
Central to the project has been asset management initiatives that supported a collaborative working approach with Next, River Island and Debenhams to curate the optimal trading platforms for them, as well as aesthetic improvements including the creation of full height stores on Upper and Lower Malls and a full refurbishment of Holy Brook Mall and The Riverside.
