M&S Foodhall (11,024 sq ft), Boots (10,005 sq ft), JD Sports (5,484 sq ft) and Outfit (10,031 sq ft) will be the Edge Lane location’s first big brand retailers with opening scheduled for October this year
Six high street retail and leisure favourites have been announced as headline tenants for the new £100m Liverpool Shopping Park, which opens this October.
M&S Foodhall (11,024 sq ft), Boots (10,005 sq ft), JD Sports (5,484 sq ft) and Outfit (10,031 sq ft) will be the Edge Lane location’s first big brand retailers.
Hollywood Bowl and a 156-seater Chiquito Restaurant Mexican Bar & Grill will join the park’s leisure line-up.
The four newly-signed retailers will take space in the Western Quarter – a distinct horseshoe of 17 retail units totalling 105,598 sq ft, which makes up the first phase of the scheme and fronts on to Edge Lane.
Chiquito will occupy a plot at the entrance to Liverpool Shopping Park, next to the new Frankie & Benny’s restaurant which was announced earlier this year.
The 24-lane Hollywood Bowl is set to open in summer 2018. The new lettings follow completion of the new 49,000 sq ft flagship B&Q, which opened earlier this month.
David Lyons, chief executive of developer, The Derwent Group, said: “From the outset we’ve said that the success of Liverpool Shopping Park is dependent on the strength of the retail and leisure tenant mix and we have been working hard to get the balance right and these deals over the line.
“Liverpool Shopping Park will be one of the UK’s biggest shopping schemes once complete and we’re thrilled that the first wave of lettings is so strong.”
Liverpool Shopping Park will total 727,000 sq ft (including mezzanine floors) of retail space once complete and includes parking for 1,500 cars and a significant leisure offer.
It will provide employment for more than 3,000 people.
