Fashion retailer Monki is set to open next week in Glasgow city centre. 

The Swedish brand will open on Friday 17 November in the former H&M unit in the Buchanan Galleries shopping centre. 

Doors will open at 11am with 20% off everything on opening day plus special discounts across the weekend, while the first 150 customers through the doors will receive a 40% flash sale bracelet.

Monki’s arrival is just one of a number of new stores that Buchanan Galleries has welcomed in recent months, including leading food-on-the-go brand, Greggs and health and beauty retailer, Superdrug

Australian brands have been taking the centre by storm too, with Smiggle, the exciting and colourful stationery retailer, opening its doors in August and fashion forward jewellery brand Lovisa launching their first store in Scotland at Buchanan Galleries.

Kathy Murdoch, centre manager at Buchanan Galleries, said: “We are delighted to welcome all of our new retailers to the centre and give our customers such a wide choice when it comes to shopping.”

The new Monki store, which will open at the Sauchiehall Street entrance to the centre, will adopt the Monki World concept - leading customers into an imaginary universe, with a full spectrum of rainbow colours across its fitting rooms, beautiful Sea of Scallops tables, shimmering features and an exclusive façade.
