This latest commitment by the international retailers, showcases a strong vote of confidence in the destination, following successful 2022 results.
Set to open this coming summer, Hollister will occupy a new space on South John Street, and in doing so, will offer activewear and loungewear to Liverpool for the first time through its Gilly Hicks brand. This new combined space will be one of the first of the new prototype stores in Europe, bringing the Abercrombie & Fitch Co. brands under the same roof for the first time in the city.
Rob Deacon, Senior Asset Manager at Grosvenor, commented: “It is fantastic to see Hollister reaffirm its commitment to Liverpool ONE by moving into a newer space, as well as introducing its sub-brand, Gilly Hicks. This deal is a testament to the momentum we are continuing to build at the destination and is particularly exciting given the new space will be one of the first model stores in Europe. We look forward to seeing the store open and feel confident it will be a hit with Liverpool ONE’s visitors.”
