FASHION outlets Phase Eight and Hobbs have now re-opened at Merry Hill with brand new stores, following a move across the centre.

The two shops have relocated together to the Upper Mall, near Boots.

Phase Eight stocks premium women’s fashionwear, including event wear and dress up dress down styles across sizes 6-26, with complimentary personal styling appointments available at the store.

Hobbs specialises in timeless but contemporary womenswear, designed to fit and flatter all sizes including petite wearers, with personal stylists on hand to share outfit solutions.

Jonathan Poole, Merry Hill’s centre manager, said: “It’s fantastic to see Phase Eight and Hobbs open an expanded offering for our Merry Hill visitors to enjoy.

"The new stores, next to one another, bring a wide selection of sophisticated, timeless womenswear, premium footwear, and accessories, perfect for those looking to add to or create a whole new outfit.

“We’ve seen a number of retailers increase the size of their stores and invest more into their spaces at Merry Hill this year, which will provide even more choice for shoppers ahead of the busy festive season.”

Caraline Money, global group retail director at TFG Brands, added: “The centre is a perfectly positioned key regional location, and it was a natural next step to expand our existing space there.

“We’re sure visitors will love our expanded specialist selection of premium womenswear.”
