JD Sports in Liverpool ONE is getting even BIGGER!
If you love your trainers and sportswear then you will love this news. Liverpool ONE’s JD Sports is doubling in size into what will become a regional flagship store.
The new-look Paradise Street store will open in the autumn.
Meanwhile, Superdry will relocate to Liverpool ONE’s South John Street.
The new store also reinforces Paradise Street’s position as one of the strongest collections of urban fashion and accessories brands in the UK, with 7Liverpool, Jack Wolfskin and Urban Decay all opening in the last few months.
Chris Bliss, Estate Director at Liverpool ONE, said: “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.
“JD Sports’ decision to expand follows a highly successful performance at Liverpool ONE.”
Warren Thompson, from JD Sports, added: “Liverpool ONE is a key location for JD so we are very pleased to be opening a new flagship store on Paradise Street. 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.”
The news crowns a very successful 2016 for Liverpool ONE, with footfall reaching 29 million, 4% ahead of the UK, and sales growing by 8% compared to 2015. In addition, more than 20 brands opened at Liverpool ONE last year, including new regional flagships for Victoria’s Secret and Apple on South John Street, as well as Rolex, Lindt, Smiggle and Cosy Club on Paradise Street.
