Pull & Bear to open ‘UK-first’ store at Liverpool One

The fashion brand has taken a larger 10,000 sq ft store at Grosvenor’s Liverpool One, set to be the first outlet of its type in UK and Ireland.

While Pull & Bear already operates at Liverpool One, it is set to relocate to a larger store on upper South John Street to bring a forward a new retail concept, named ’18,1’ and featuring an ‘interactive catwalk’ instead of a window display. This will be the first time the concept has been used in the UK.

Pull & Bear is part of the Inditex group of brands, which operates 970 stores globally. Other brands to sign up at Grosvenor’s Liverpool One in recent months include jewellery brand Rox, which is due to open on Peter’s Lane in the summer.

Cushman & Wakefield and Metis Real Estate acted for Liverpool One on the deal, while Inditex represented itself.

Alison Clegg, director of asset management at Grosvenor Europe, said: “Liverpool One is known for its cachè of popular international brands and focus on fashion, and we are thrilled to secure Pull & Bear’s first 18,1 concept store in the UK.  Inditex is the latest in a long list of leading brands to select Liverpool One for flagship stores.”

That’s it now, pull and bear, best shopping centre in the world Liverpool one rest of the world nil

To be fair L1 is leagues better than the depressing Arndale centre and I say that as a proud Mancunian.

One has a roof, one doesn’t. There’s no difference at the store fronts.

@kev Hey? DUM dum
Great news for Liverpool and its shoppers

By Danny

I too dislike the Arndale intensely. It’s clearly a 1970s monstrosity that was built years before the other comparable centres.
However, the numbers don’t lie – google “shopping centre visitor numbers” and it’s in a different league to Liverpool One.

Rubbish and inaccurate article. Pull and Bear has been open in the Trafford Centre for at least 3-4 years, so it is not their first UK store

By Steve

Steve, read the article properly. It doesn’t say it’s the first in the UK, it’s the first of the new concept in the UK…

By observant

It already operates at L1 among other sites, come on guys settle down:)

By Suits you sir!

Liverpool One is part of a top city/Waterfront tourism destination. That’s the difference.

They are also already in Liverpool One too. I think the article isnt clear that they are expanding in the UK with another new format, ……which will be their first.
