It builds on the company’s latest contemporary shop fit with 15 cash desks and 27 fitting rooms, free Wi-Fi throughout, as well as a customer ‘recharge’ seating area for an enjoyable and convenient shopping experience.

Employees in ‘back of house’ can enjoy open spaces designed with modern features and comforts such as a ‘Recharge Café’ with a kitchen area and bright décor. This space, the retailer notes, is designed to feel like a home away from home for employees.
