Two high street names to be part of Barnsley's The Glass Works

Two more high-street names, River Island and Fridays, have signed to be part of Barnsley’s The Glass Works this week and are set to open in Spring.

Fashion chain River Island has announced it will open a large store in The Glass Works early this Spring – located next to TK Maxx on the ground floor of the new glass-covered shopping boulevard.

With more than 300 stores across the UK, Ireland and internationally, River Island is seen as a major acquisition for Barnsley town centre. It is one of the most respected and sought-after high-street brands operating today and has long been desired by Barnsley shoppers.

Frances Baker, Property Director of River Island commented: “We are delighted to be bringing a new River Island store in Barnsley, our first in the town centre.

“The transformation of the retail core here has been really impressive and allows us to design a modern store that delivers the best shopping experience possible for our customers. We can’t wait to open”.

Robert B. Cook, Chief Executive of Fridays UK said: “We are very excited to be bringing our best ever menu alongside that iconic service and spirit of generosity of Fridays to Barnsley town centre.

“We have always felt the love and loyalty from our Yorkshire fans and can’t wait to spread that Fridays Feeling even further across the county. Sitting near Superbowl UK and Cineworld, we will be perfectly placed to bring that Fridays Feeling whether you’re out for a date, girls’ night or a family dinner.”
