Clothing brand COS is to open a regional flagship store within the Peter’s Lane high end retail pitch at Liverpool ONE.
COS, which is part of the H&M group, will launch its 5,700 sq ft store at the entrance to Peter’s Lane in May, adjacent to Flannels and Beauty Bazaar Harvey Nichols in what will be its first standalone store in the North West.
Alison Clegg, director of asset management at Grosvenor Europe, said: “We are very pleased to secure a first store in the North West for COS, which is another great directional fashion brand for Liverpool ONE.
“COS joins a cache of exceptional premium brands located on Peter’s Lane that together provide the best in designer clothing, footwear, jewellery and beauty products.”
Sam Miller, head of expansion at H&M Group, added: “Liverpool is known for its focus on fashion, and nowhere more so than Liverpool ONE. The high footfall and line-up of complementary brands on Peter’s Lane will be great assets as we introduce our first COS standalone store in the North West.”
Liverpool ONE this year celebrates its tenth anniversary and continues to perform well, with 2017 sales up 3% year-on-year in a year that saw footfall of 29 million. Grosvenor said that a further arrival at Peter’s Lane will be announced in the coming weeks.
