Centre manager of Lion Walk, Martin Leatherdale, is also pleased with the opening of the new store.

He said: “It is great to bring yet another new business to Colchester.

“We welcome the Bellaze team and are very proud of the high standards they have achieved with their new world-class beauty store. 

“This is the first major new opening this year, in what is a relatively large unit, and kicks off the start of more announcements to come.

“We have three more big openings lined up - including Pret joining the mix.

“These, coupled with the delivery of St Nicholas square works and the Summer Courtyard coming back soon with its best entertainment and concept ever, we’re on the way to some good times ahead for this year.”
