LUSH has moved to a bigger store at intu Merry Hill.

After trading at the Brierley Hill shopping centre for 18 years, the cosmetics retailer decided it was time to expand.

The new store, located next to Waterstones on the lower mall, was officially opened by the Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Dave Tyler, on Friday morning (November 10).

Manager, Claire Cole, said: “We are all so proud of our brand new Lush store in intu Merry Hill.

"We have been in the centre for 18 years and a bigger store was definitely needed - we have gone from a shop size of 33sqm to a whopping 139sqm!"

She continued: “The support given to us by our local community has truly been overwhelming and we thank you all for that.

"We hope to give you all amazing service with lots of new memories to be made together over the years to come.

“I would also like to give a special thank you to the Mayor of Dudley for assisting us with the opening of our new store.”

Rob Pickersgill, the centre's marketing manager, added: “We are always thrilled when one of our existing retailers chooses to invest in their store and increase their presence at intu Merry Hill.

“Our shoppers are being treated to a number of significant improvements throughout the centre and we are sure our fantastic new Lush store will prove to be very popular.”

There are currently no plans for the old Lush unit.
