JD Sports to open new flagship store at Liverpool One

JD Sports, a sports fashion retailer, is to move into a new upsized regional flagship store in Liverpool.

JD’s new 40,000 sq ft shop, will be located on Paradise Street within Liverpool ONE and is double the size of its existing city centre store.

To accommodate the move, fashion brand Superdry will relocate to a 10,000 sq ft unit on Liverpool ONE’s South John Street.

Miles Dunnett from Grosvenor Europe, which owns 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.“

Warren Thompson, JD Sports’ group acquisitions manager, said “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 new store will open up later on this year.
