Office has opened in the Grosvenor Centre

Office opened on the ground floor of the Grosvenor Centre last week, selling both its own label and branded footwear.

The Chron revealed in August that Office would be moving to town.

Office, which describes itself as a “leading-edge fashion footwear specialist”, has moved into the unit opposite Primark which was previously occupied by gadget store Menkind.

Warren James has moved to a prime spot on the ground floor of the Grosvenor Centre

Menkind has moved to the unit next door.

Officer has taken up the 3,000 square ft unit on a 10-year-lease.

Bosses at the Grosvenor Centre said they were delighted that Office was moving into the centre and said they were confident the store will provide a modern and vibrant addition.

The closure of Monsoon in July also created some additional retail space which has now been filled by jewellery chain Warren James.
