BRAINTREE Village has welcomed three new shops.

Menswear brand Jack and Jones, luxury designer Kate Spade New York and the Cornish Bakery have all opened at the shopping outlet since it reopened in June.

Jack and Jones offers a range of clothing, from urban sportswear to tailor made suits.

The store is offering shoppers a 30 per cent discount following its opening in Braintree.

It is located next to Dune London on the south mall.

Kate Spade is based near the Polo Ralph Lauren shop and is the brand's first store in Essex.

It offers fashionable clothing, signature handbags and even jewellery.

The opening has seen the shop launch a 60 per cent discount on some of its stock.

The Cornish Bakery meanwhile provides shoppers with the option of taking a break and enjoying a quick bite to eat.

It offers a range of pasties, French pastries and hand-roasted coffees.

Braintree Village says the new shops have created 25 new jobs at the centre.

Director Josef O’Sullivan said: "We are excited to welcome these new brands to Braintree Village and know that our fashion-loving guests will be eager to shop at Jack & Jones and Kate Spade New York.

"The Cornish Bakery will be a real-hit with visitors thanks to its excellent food offering."
