Liverpool One has revealed it has bucked the downward trend plaguing many retail destinations around the UK by recording an uptick in sales for the year so far.

The mixed-use shopping precinct, which is owned by Grosvenor Europe, saw a 4.6 per cent increase in spend per visitor in 2019.

Meanwhile, sales have grown by three per cent compared to the overall UK average of just 0.7 per cent for 2019.

Grosvenor added that 25 brands have signed, opened or renewed their leases at Liverpool One since the beginning of the year.

One of those is Oliver Bonas, which just recently announced plans to open its first store for the city of Liverpool within the precinct.

Due to open this autumn, Oliver Bonas will take a 2956sq ft space.

It joins the recently-upsized Pull&Bear on upper South John Street, the upcoming launch of a North West flagship for beauty brand Too Faced, and the signing of luxury jewellers Rox for a 1600 sq ft boutique on Peter’s Lane.
