An ‘urban lifestyle’ clothes and footwear store is set to be newest addition at a Brighton shopping centre, taking over the spot which was once home to Zara.

Footasylum will open in Churchill Square later this summer, selling sportswear and casual fashion, including Nike, The North Face, New Balance, Converse, Vans, Under Armour and more.

Mark Buchanan-Smith, Churchill Square centre director, said: “I’m delighted that we are able to add such a popular, well-known brand to our retail offering at Churchill Square.

“We’re always striving to ensure that we have the best possible retail options for our shoppers and in the past year we’ve welcomed a number of new names to the centre including Krispy Kreme and iSmash, along with Zara moving into a new, larger space, so I’m pleased that Footasylum will be joining the line-up here.

“It is an extremely exciting brand and a name that I’m sure will prove extremely popular, especially with some of our younger shoppers. I’m looking forward to announcing an opening date in the not too distant future.”

Anthony Potts, retail marketing manager for Footasylum, said: “We pride ourselves on being a dynamic, adaptive and fast-moving business with a strong competitive position and great stable of brands. Brighton is a young and fashion-forward city so we’re delighted to be opening at Churchill Square. It is a fantastic site with access to a large proportion of our target customers.”
