New Look and Skechers commit to Liverpool One
It’s not just about attracting new businesses but also keeping existing ones. So property landlord Grosvenor Britain & Ireland has announced three new deals with New Look, Skechers and Kenji to keep the three brands at its 25,00 sq ft Liverpool One shopping destination.
In the case of New Look, the fashion retailer is relocating to a 20,000 sq ft flagship store, trading up from 15,000 sq ft, on South John Street. Set to launch in the autumn, the new store will feature New Look’s extensive womenswear collections, including activewear and occasionwear, alongside its 915 collection for children and teenagers.
Meanwhile, lifestyle and athletic footwear and apparel brand Skechers has renewed the lease for its 3,578 sq ft regional flagship on lower South John Street. The Skechers store stocks the brand’s full product range for men, women, and children.
Completing the trio of brands continuing to commit to Liverpool One is Japanese-inspired lifestyle brand Kenji, which has signed to make South John Street its permanent home after a successful 10 months of trading from its 1,500 sq ft unit. The concept store will continue to blend retail, leisure and hospitality into its mini-arcade format, alongside its collection of homewares, stationery and gifts.
A spokesperson at New Look said: “Our new store is in a key location for our customers in the region. While the retail landscape continues to evolve, we believe a high-quality store experience will always be crucial to our success”.
Alison Clegg, MD, Asset Management at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, added: “Ensuring we are continually meeting the needs of our existing tenants and providing opportunities for long-term success is a key focus for Liverpool One.
"New Look has proven to be a strong performer for many years, so it is fantastic to work with the brand to reposition and enhance its presence. We are also pleased that Skechers and Kenji are endorsing their successful experience… with extended leases”.
