This new opening adds to the Damaged Society empire, which already has stores across the UK in cities like Glasgow, Nottingham and Bristol.

Its new, larger store will be located on the upper mall, opposite its current store on High Friars, providing shoppers with "even more choice when seeking unique and quirky brands and merchandise not available anywhere else on the high street."
