River Island will move from its current location in Abington Street to inside the Grosvenor Centre within the next few months.

James Robert, the Grosvenor Centre's new manager, confirmed that work is set to 'imminently' start to convert the former WHSmith into a two-storey River Island outlet.

It comes after WHSmith recently moved to a smaller vacant unit on the other side of the mall following the closure of Poundworld last year.
