Art, craft, book and stationery retailer The Works has opened at White Rose Shopping Centre, sharing its mission of inspiring reading, learning, creativity, and play with the South Leeds community.

The new store is located in White Rose’s Central Atrium, on the ground floor near JD Sports, and has created up to 15 new full and part-time jobs at the centre.

The Works offers customers an exciting selection of quality products to suit every taste and for every occasion, all at excellent value for money. The brand new store will provide customers with access to its full range including books, toys, games, arts & crafts, stationery and more.

Steven Foster, centre director, said: “The Works is a brilliant addition to our retail mix, and we’re pleased to welcome the brand to White Rose. The store is the ideal destination for fun, creative activities and reading materials to keep kids’ – and adults’ – cogs whirring, and we expect it’ll be very popular here at White Rose.”

Jeremy Smith, property director at The Works, added: “We are very excited to have recently opened at White Rose Shopping Centre, which is a hive of retail activity and a location we have had our eyes on for some time. At The Works we aim to inspire people to read, learn, create and play and are delighted to welcome new customers from South Leeds and the surrounding areas to our brand new store.”
