News Shopping Property: Sweaty Betty and Space NK Open Their First City Stores at Liverpool ONE
Grosvenor has revealed that Sweaty Betty, a global activewear and lifestyle brand, and Space NK, a luxury cosmetics retailer, have both opened their first-ever city stores at Liverpool ONE.
These new additions join the impressive lineup of premium brands located at Liverpool ONE's upscale lifestyle destination, Peter's Lane, showcasing a strong vote of confidence in the area.
Sweaty Betty has introduced its inaugural city store at the 2,600 sq ft Peter Lane location, marking the brand's largest retail store in northern England. The store presents a fresh concept for the international retailer, designed to offer a lifestyle ambiance while emphasizing the brand's commitment to both fashion and functionality, featuring its standout products.
The space includes "Power Pod" fitting rooms: private, inviting areas with comfortable furnishings and seating for customer interaction. In line with the brand's dedication to ethical consumption, the store has been outfitted with sustainable and environmentally friendly materials. It stocks Sweaty Betty's extensive range of women's activewear, crafted from responsibly sourced and recycled fabrics.
Also making its city debut is Space NK, which has launched a 1,850 sq ft store featuring a selection of the world's most coveted beauty brands, including Drunk Elephant, Tatcha, Diptyque, and Rare Beauty. Space NK Liverpool ONE follows the brand's new flagship store design concept and includes a dedicated consultation area for makeup and skincare, as well as a treatment room.
Mark Smith, COO at Sweaty Betty, stated: "Sweaty Betty's opening at Liverpool ONE is a significant moment for the brand, not only because we are making our standalone city debut but also because we are showcasing our new customer-focused store concept. Sweaty Betty Liverpool ONE is our largest retail store in northern England and provides us with the space and flexibility to introduce this exciting new model, offering visitors an enhanced Sweaty Betty experience."
Andy Lightfoot, Space NK CEO, commented: "We are thrilled to have launched our city debut at Liverpool ONE, bringing our new premium store concept to such a strategically important destination. This location has long been one of our most requested, so it is hugely exciting to finally open the doors to Space NK Liverpool ONE. We look forward to engaging with a new community and continuing to provide customers with our innovative and boundary-pushing offerings."
Rob Deacon, Senior Asset Manager at Grosvenor, added: "Peter's Lane continues to evolve into a hotspot for high-end brands at Liverpool ONE, positioning the destination as a crucial location for premium retailers. The arrival of both Sweaty Betty and Space NK is a testament to this. It is a huge vote of confidence in the destination that both brands have chosen Liverpool ONE not only for their debut city locations but also as the home of their brand-new store concepts, reinforcing the destination's reputation as a hub for pioneering, first-rate retail concepts."
This news of the new openings on Peter's Lane comes following the recent announcement that award-winning British luxury jeweler David M Robinson will launch its third store and a new city debut at Liverpool ONE in October. The 3,600 sq ft space will be a boutique in partnership with Swiss watch brand TAG Heuer, marking LVMH's first dedicated partnership in the city.
