High Street fashion retailer Accessorize has opened a new store in the departure lounge at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA).
The new unit is located on the upper floor of the lounge and one of the first stores to open as part of the ongoing £4m refurbishment and upgrade programme that has been under way since late last year.
Accessorize, which has around 900 stores worldwide, is known for its vibrant accessories and its store at LJLA has everything from bags to swimwear, jewellery to flip flops and all at tax-free prices, giving a 20% saving over their high street store prices.
It will open from 4am until 8pm every day of the week so that passengers departing on the first departures of the day to some of the last flights in the evening have the opportunity to take advantage of the range of items in store.
David Taylor, LJLA’s retail operations manager, said: “Accessorize are a well known, successful retailer and we are therefore delighted that they are taking the opportunity to invest in a store here at LJLA.
“We know this will be a very popular addition to the growing retail offer we have at the airport for our passengers and the opening of their store is the latest development of our £4m departure lounge improvements.”
