JD Sports to upsize at Liverpool ONE
JD Sports is to upsize to a new regional flagship at the Liverpool ONE shopping destination.
Situated on Paradise Street, the new store spans almost 40,000 square feet and is twice the size of the existing JD Sports store.
JD Sports said the new shop has been designed in-house and will bring a unique concept to the North West when it opens later this year.
Warren Thompson, group acquisitions manager at JD Sports, said: “The additional space will allow us to create something quite spectacular, combining the very best mix of brands and product lines with an outstanding experience for our customers.”
Miles Dunnett from Liverpool ONE operator Grosvenor Europe added: “We are delighted to have been able to create this prime location for JD Sports on Liverpool ONE’s Paradise Street. The significantly larger store reinforces Liverpool ONE’s position as one of the leading retail and leisure destinations in the UK with a line-up of UK and international brands that is second to none.”
To accommodate JD Sports’ increase, Superdry is relocating to Liverpool ONE’s South John Street where the fashion brand will open a 10,000 square foot store.
The news follows a successful 2016 for Liverpool ONE with footfall reaching 29 million and sales growing by 8% year-on-year.
In addition, more than 20 brands opened in Liverpool ONE last year including new regional flagships for Victoria’s Secret’s and Apple and new stores for Rolex, Lindt, Smiggle and Cosy Club.
