Four stores are opening in The Bentall Centre just in time for Christmas, including three new additions.

American homeware retailer West Elm will bring its modern home furniture, accessories and soft furnishings to Kingston when it opens its second UK store on December 8.

NYX Cosmetics is also opening its second standalone UK store, NYX Professional Make Up, on December 7.

Toy shop The Entertainer is moving from Kingston Market Square to the ground floor, opening on December 15.

Zara has reopened following an extensive refurbishment, increasing in size by 5000 sq ft to span two floors.

Simon Green, director at Aviva Investors Real Estate, said: “These four store openings demonstrate that national and international retailers recognise The Bentall Centre is the first-choice retail destination for shoppers and visitors to Kingston.

“We are pleased that all four stores are opening in time for peak trading and are confident that the Kingston shopper will respond positively to these new stores.

“Our work doesn’t stop here, and next year we will be continuing to invest in new shopper spaces, further services and experiences for customers.”

The Bentall Centre has an average footfall of 258,000 shoppers a week and has 80 units spread over its four floors.
