It's got a lid on it: Mailbox opens after latest redevelopment phase

Hot on the heels of Resorts World and the huge new John Lewis at Grand Central, luxury shopping mall The Mailbox has re-opened its doors to reveal the full results of its two-year, £50 million redevelopment.

Earlier phases of the facelift for the former Royal Mail sorting office saw the opening of the 11-screen Everyman cinema and premium department store Harvey Nichols doubling in size, as well as the introduction of drinking venues Aluna and Gas Street Social.

There's been a raft of changes for this most recent stage of the makeover, the most significant of which is a glass sky-lit roof to shield shoppers from unpleasant weather. This new roof has also helped create a new 'Urban Room' – a 70m public space that'll be used to host events, exhibitions and other social activities.

The relaunch has seen the opening and revamping of several stores, too. This includes an expanded Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein boutique, men's tailor Gieves & Hawkes, designer womenswear brand LK Bennett and Daniel Footwear.

Elsewhere, you'll find two pop-up shops from mens' fashion brand East Club and designer childrens' store Cloudo Kids. The ground floor now also features the Castle Fine Art gallery.

There are still a few finishing touches to be put in place, though, and 2016 will see Armani and Jeager joining the line up.

The Mailbox is hosting a special celebration weekend over the next few days, with a number events taking place from cocktail trails and dance routines, to special offers and expert talks.
