Putting on the style in shopping arcade

A MORPETH shopping centre has a new fashion addition which is one for the men.

Premium retailer Frank Bird is spreading the company’s wings with a store in the town’s Sanderson Arcade complex.

The 890 sq ft menswear shop will be opening in the Edwardian-style gallery tomorrow with a special launch event.

General Manager Neil Tennant said: “Morpeth is a beautiful market town and we are really looking forward to welcoming our new customers and showing them some of the great looks we’ve got for spring here at Frank Bird.”

The company opened its first store in Barnsley in 1939 and it was founded on the principle of providing high quality clothing. Brands available will include Polo Ralph Lauren, Barbour, Tommy Hilfiger, Sand, Pretty Green and Lyle and Scott.

The following Friday, March 16, will see the launch of another new retailer in the gallery section. Hobbs, which sells women’s clothing, shoes and accessories, is opening its first stand-alone store in the North East.

l Two Sanderson Arcade shops, JoJo Maman Bebe and Mountain Warehouse, are celebrating their first birthdays in the centre on Saturday and Sunday by giving all customers special offers.

These include 10 per cent off many items – terms and conditions apply, see in the stores for more details.
