A COSMETICS chain is moving into Winchester High Street.

Rituals Cosmetics is taking over the shop between O2 and Café Nero, which was previously occupied by jewellery chain Pandora.

Boards have been erected in the windows, announcing the arrival of the cosmetic brand. The Rituals website is also advertising positions at the shop in Winchester.

A planning application has also been submitted on behalf of the business to Winchester City Council.
