River Island has opened its first standalone childrenswear store in Glasgow ahead of a national roll out.

The new store is located within Intu Braehead shopping centre and is 3000sq ft space close to a larger, regular River Island shop.

The new store offers all of River Island’s baby, toddler and children’s wear collections, including its recently-launched gender-neutral kidswear line.

The opening comes as River Island prepares a national rollout of dedicated kidswear stores across the UK.

“River Island came to us last year on plans for the first River Island Kids in the UK and we’ve been working with them closely to launch this exciting new store at intu Braehead,” said Kate Grant, regional managing director at Intu.

Intu Braehead is a popular destination for young families as it also hosts a number of leisure attractions, including Scotland’s only indoor ski slope, in addition to more than 1.1 million sq ft of retail space.
