Kick Game is set to open in July and will mark the brand’s city debut, joining stores in London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Leeds. The retailer will offer exclusive sneaker and streetwear collections from sportwear brands such as Nike, adidas, Supreme, and Off-White.
Alicia Thompson, CEO of Kick Game, commented: “Liverpool is increasingly becoming an urban hub for streetwear fashion and hype sneakers, which made it a key location for us to extend the reach of our brand. We are hugely excited to be moving onto South John Street.”
Alongside Kick Game, Kenji’s Liverpool ONE store is set to upsize by 40%. The upsized store will be one of the brand’s first to feature new arcade-like claw machines, and will introduce their new ‘makers section’, a space set aside for small business owners and local Liverpool creatives to sell and feature their products.
Alison Clegg, Managing Director, Asset Management, Grosvenor, added, “This signing, combined with the upsizing of Kenji, reiterates Liverpool ONE as a long-term destination for brands to put down roots. Both retailers contribute to the destination’s varied and vibrant offering, which we are constantly adapting to mirror the evolution of consumer demand.”
Metis and CBRE acted for Liverpool ONE. Kick Game and Kenji dealt direct.
