Grosvenor signs Kooples in Liverpool One
French fashion retailer, The Kooples, has signed a lease on a 1,875 sq ft store in Peter's Lane, due to open before Easter.
The Kooples joins Hobbs, Jaeger, Reiss, Ted Baker, Radley and Whistles in Peter's Lane. It will be The Kooples' second standalone store in the region, along with Manchester's King Street. There are further concessions in Selfridges, House of Fraser and Trafford Centre.
A spokesman for The Kooples said: "We have a strong following in the region, via our website and department store concessions, but it is vital for our growth to establish boutiques in key locations. Liverpool One's catchment has a love of fashion and style that is absolutely perfect for The Kooples, and the elegance of Peter's Lane is a great complement to our own unique style."
Chris Bliss, estate director at Liverpool One added: "We're pleased to be able to confirm that The Kooples will be opening its second store in the North West at Liverpool One. The Kooples is a fantastic addition to Liverpool ONE's premium fashion line-up, and is completely in line with our approach of bringing new and exciting brands to the region."
Meanwhile, Grosvenor said sales at Liverpool One rose by 10% in 2011 compared to 2010, and footfall over the same period increased by more than 5%.
