A NEW Reiss outlet store has opened at the York Designer Outlet.

The new shop employs eight staff and may recruit further workers in the Christmas period.

Mike Thomas, centre manager, said: “As the only Reiss outlet store in Yorkshire, we think the arrival of this brand at the centre will make waves in the region. Complementing other leading men’s and women’s wear brands at the outlet including Ted Baker, French Connection and Armani Collections, we expect Reiss to broaden our offer for the younger, more fashion-conscious shopper.”

Sanjay Sharma, commercial director at Reiss says: “We are delighted to be opening our fourth outlet in the UK.

“Our Leeds and York stores are extremely popular with Yorkshire shoppers and we look forward to the reception of Yorkshire’s first Reiss outlet store.”
