The fashion retailer has moved into a large unit in the Sovereign Centre, which was created by merging two smaller units formerly occupied by plus-size clothing shop Evans and music and DVD store That’s Entertainment.

‘The king of trainers’, which already held a smaller shop in the shopping centre, will open at 9am tomorrow.

Work to merge the units began in January, and staff have been working hard to fit the new shop before its shutters roll up for the first time.

The store stocks popular brands like Adidas, Nike and Ellesse.
