Children’s stationery shop Smiggle is set to open in early September, say Friars Square bosses.

The store which has the slogan ‘where a smile meets a giggle’ is due to open in a new unit next to Clinton Cards ahead of the new school term.

Friars Square operations manager Shaun Hammell said: “We are delighted to welcome Smiggle, who are a new trader, selling funky kids stationery.”

Another new store which has recently opened is Vision Express and Mr Hammell said: “It has been a very good first couple of weeks for Vision Express and their turnover is up.”

On plans for the future, Mr Hammell said ‘there is a lot going on behind the scenes.’

He was able to confirm there are currently three empty units at the centre, including the one formerly home to BHS.
