However a date has yet to be confirmed for when the store will open.

The News has contacted River Island’s press office for more information.

It is the latest retailer to move sites in and around Commercial Road, Portsmouth, in recent years.

JD Sport moved to a bigger spot a few doors down, while Sports Direct and Game relocated into the Cascades Shopping Centre in 2020.

Flannels recently opened a new store in Commercial Road.
