Toys 'R' Us to open at Liverpool ONE
Toys 'R' Us is to open a new store on Liverpool ONE's upper South John Street. The store will be the brand's first in Liverpool city centre.
The 12,968 sq ft store is due to launch later this month.
Mike Coogan, marketing and ecommerce director for Toys ‘R’ Us, said: “Liverpool ONE is a great location for our first store in the city centre. We are in a high profile, high footfall position on South John Street, surrounded by other leading brands. Along with Liverpool ONE’s design and the way it is managed, particularly with its continual programme of events, it was the only option for us as we sought to fulfil a long-standing requirement for a store in the Liverpool city centre.”
Miles Dunnett, head of asset management at Grosvenor Liverpool Fund, said: “Toys ‘R’ Us is a key addition to Liverpool ONE’s line-up of family-orientated brands. Combined with our existing toy and childrenswear retailers, our wide range of restaurants and cafes, and the open space provided by Chavasse Park, we have a critical mass that makes Liverpool ONE the first choice destination for families throughout the North West region.”
The announcement coincides with the news that Liverpool ONE has increased its sales by 5.7% in the year to date compared to the same period last year.
