A new clothes shop is set to open in Bury St Edmunds town centre next week, it has been revealed. 

Phase Eight is currently located in Abbeygate Street but in May it was revealed it will relocate to a "considerably larger" premises at the arc shopping centre in the west Suffolk town. 

Now, a Phase Eight spokesperson has confirmed the new store will open its doors on Friday, July 19. 

In May a spokesman for the chain said: "The current location is 690 sq. ft. (gross) and the new store will be 2,393 sq. ft. (gross)."

The new store began being fitted out in May. 

This comes after the new Deichmann Shoes shop opened in the arc shopping centre last week. 

The store has taken over the former Peacocks unit following a £600,000 refit after the fashion retailer closed its doors in January. 

In March, Primark opened its doors in the centre at the former Debenhams.
