The Works will be the third retailer taking space along with British lifestyle retailers, Oliver Bonas and The White Company.

At The Works, we aim to inspire our customers to read, learn, create and play, and our stores play a very important part in this. We can’t wait to welcome new customers from Morpeth and the surrounding areas through the doors of our newest store this summer!”

The new 1,758 sq. ft. store will be located opposite the town’s busy bus station and large car park which offers free parking for up to three hours.
