Tessuti to open global flagship at Liverpool One
Designer retailer Tessuti has announced the opening of its new global flagship store at Liverpool One.
Part of JD Sports Group, Tessuti has operated a 5,300 sq ft store on Liverpool One's Peter’s Lane since 2013. The new Tessuti Liverpool One flagship, which is almost four times as large as the original store, is set to open next spring opposite JD Sports’ store on Paradise Street.
The store will showcase curated ranges from established premium and luxury fashion brands and up-and-coming designers.
The announcement follows an increase in trading performance at Liverpool One since retail reopened on 12 April. Retail sales were up 14.4% in Q3 compared to the same period in 2019.
Alison Clegg, Managing Director and Asset Management at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, said: “The creation of an upsized flagship for Tessuti has been a shared objective for some time, given the brand’s consistently strong performance at Liverpool One.
"Their growth is an excellent endorsement for the destination and signifies the ongoing demand for physical retail, as well as the growth of our premium and luxury-focused offering.”
Other recent additions to Liverpool One include a new 20,000 sq ft flagship for New Look and the debut of Escape Live.
