The store’s name has been added to the interactive map on the shopping centre’s website.

The map shows it will move into the former Jack Wills unit next to Swarovski in the lower mall.

The unit has been vacant since January 2023 and since then the centre has itself changed hands.

Søstrene Grene is a family-owned retailer, created by sisters Anna and Clare in 1973.

Dubbed the “mini IKEA”, the store is known for its stylish homeware and furniture which are creative and functional.

Items for sale include partyware, stationary, health and beauty products and furniture including chair, tables and storage.
