Take a look at the new River Island store in the Trafford Centre - the biggest in the UK - as it opens with an epic launch weekend including £1 coffees, an in-store DJ and a florist.

The biggest River Island store in the UK has opened in the Trafford Centre in Manchester. The fashion brand reopened a branch in a different location in the famous shopping centre on Friday (5 May).

Originally situated in a two-storey site, River Island has moved to a new space allowing shoppers to easily access everything on one level. And the clothing concern is not doing things by half, as its new presence at the retail centre is its biggest store anywhere in the country.
