Horsham’s Swan Walk shopping centre has announced today a new large fashion retailer will be moving to the town next year.

The new shop is set to move into the empty unit vacated by Optical Express in the centre and work has already begun to create the new store.

However, it has not yet been confirmed which retailer will be taking over the empty unit.

Centre manager Gill Buchanan said:“We are incredibly excited for our existing tenants and all of our customers.

“We know that our customers want to see more fashion brands in Horsham and anticipate that this new store will open in 2016.”

Hoardings will be in place during all the works and will be dressed with centre information and updates as the project progresses.
