NEWPORT town centre is to receive an economic boost with the arrival of two national fashion chains.

Peacocks has announced it is reopening its branch in South Street, Newport on Thursday (15), creating 11 jobs.

Meanwhile, the Isle of Wight’s first Jane Norman store will open in what was formerly Bon Marche next door. However, an opening date has yet to be confirmed.

Bon Marche and Peacocks were bought by the Edinburgh Woollen Mill group after going into administration.

Peacocks in Newport closed in February this year, with the loss of around ten jobs.
