A well-known womenswear chain has announced plans to open a store in St Helens town centre.
Lavitta will launch its third UK store when it opens its doors in the Hardshaw Shopping Centre later this month.
The move is set to create seven full and part-time jobs.
Anil and Anand Chima, directors at Lavitta, said: “This is an exciting time for Lavitta, we launched online last year and are proud that we are able to open a third store, bringing our offering of flattering fashion to the high-street.
“We are looking for a team that can support our ethos and help us in bringing affordable, flattering fashion to St Helens.”
