A women's fashion brand is to open in the St Albans retail unit previously occupied by Phase Eight.
Ruby Room has taken a five year lease on the Market Place premises, with a stepped rent and initial rent-free period.
Aitchison Raffety completed the letting of the premises, which comprises a 1,060 sq ft ground floor shop and 829 sq ft basement.
Ruby Room sells a mixture of clothes, accessories, gifts and furniture, which it says is aimed at "young women, new mums, and first home-owners; women who enjoy going to music festivals, take summer holidays [and] weekends away, as well as nights out with friends."
It already has branches in Hertford, Bishop's Stortford, Saffron Waldon and Leigh-On-Sea.
