Sports fashion retailer JD Sports is to open a regional flagship with the Silverburn shopping centre, Glasgow, in November this year.
Retaining the existing location and expanding into the neighbouring unit, the brand’s new store will cover 820 sq mt on the ground floor and 372 sq mt on the first floor, nearly doubling the size of the original store.
Designed by an in-house team, the new and improved store will incorporate the latest fit out plans being rolled out across JD Sports stores.
“It’s great to see JD Sports significantly increase its offering with the brand new flagship store, mirroring a wider trend in which internationally renowned brands are prioritising larger, experiential stores in prime venues,” says Iain Mitchell, UK commercial director at retail manager and developer, Hammerson. “The brand’s desire to upsize is a result of its successful performance at Silverburn and is a reflection of the centre’s position as the region’s leading retail and leisure destination.”
