New shops at indoor centre

Have your say

THE doors to two new shops are opening at The Cornhill Walk Shopping Centre in Bury St Edmunds.

@Home and Thing-Me-Bobs, which used to be in Cornhill and Abbeygate Street respectively, have taken on the former Select and Qube shoes shop in the indoor shopping centre.

Both stores were due to open following refurbishment, either yesterday or today.

Chrissy Harrod, from the shopping centre, said: “We are absolutely delighted. Both these stores will offer something completely different and should increase our footfall and brighten up Cornhill Walk ready for the spring.”

Colin Lawrence, who is director of the company which owns both stores, said they would be manned by existing staff. He described the move as strategic, offering more floorspace and allowing the two stores to operate alongside each other.
