Peter Rodgers, New Look’s Head of Retail – Central Division said: “We are excited to announce our brand new store in The Glassworks opening on July 21st, where we will continue to provide our New Look customers in Barnsley with a great fashion focussed shopping experience.

“Our existing Cheapside store will close on the 20th July and we look forwarding to welcoming our existing and new visitors to our new store”
