Bruce Rencken, owner of Lifestyle Centre, explains “The Studios launched in September last year and has become a vibey node of Lifestyle Centre, with its bespoke mix of unique retail offerings, together with Coffee Lab, TashB Pilates, FITPOD and now Next Level. Our aim was to create an inviting space where people feel comfortable to connect, linger, indulge and look after themselves. We now plan to welcome customers to The Studios once a month for a special day of unique offers, an exclusive evening of extended trading and the chance to enjoy the vibe, energy and atmosphere of this multi-functional space.”
