Sky to open first retail shop in Liverpool ONE

Grosvenor Europe and Sky have announced that Sky is opening its first ever bricks and mortar retail shop in Liverpool ONE on October 26,2020.

The new Sky flagship retail concept on South John Street will bring Sky’s leading customer service and innovative pay TV, mobile and broadband products to the UK high street, under one roof, for the first time.

Created with customers’ needs in mind, the Sky shop will be separated into designated themed spaces, allowing customers to access advisors easily and safely across the shop. The shop will have a dedicated ‘Customer Hub’, encouraging new customers to speak to advisors about the latest Sky innovations. Existing customers will be able to speak to advisors and receive advice around their current products.

All Sky shops will operate in line with the Government’s Covid-19 safety measures, including strict social distancing, mandatory facemasks and hand sanitiser available across the shop.

The Liverpool ONE shop will also feature a dedicated ‘Access All Areas’ stage. This stage will host various interactive experiences for customers, creating moments that entertain and surprise, and will put customers at the centre of Sky’s extraordinary entertainment content.

The flagship shop will allow potential customers to test out Sky’s latest innovations first-hand, and will also feature an in-shop partnership with iSmash, the popular tech repair chain that currently operates 32 locations across the UK.

This signing, along with other recent openings at Liverpool ONE, highlights the continued importance of bricks and mortar presence for leading brands.”
