Manchester Fort Shopping Park will soon be welcoming a new national retailer to the site in time for Summer 2019.
JD Sports, is due to open early Summer 2019, which will add a new and exciting addition to the retail park. JD Sports has fast become a renowned sports-fashion retailer which offers men’s, women’s and kids clothing, featuring a wide range of brands such as Adidas, New Balance, Fila and Gym King.
The new retailer marks another different retailer to the shopping park, which is bucking national footfall trends – stores on the shopping park are performing well thanks to increasing levels of visitors throughout the year.
Reasons for this success can be attributed to the unique choice available at Manchester Fort – with the only Nike store in the North West and the flagship northern store for party supplier, Party Delights, drawing in the crowds. The fact that another retailer has been keen to reap the rewards that increased footfall to the shopping park brings demonstrates the strength of Manchester Fort in a time where some retailers face administration.
Derek Askew, Centre Manager of Manchester Fort, said “JD Sports will offer another fantastic element to the shopping experience at Manchester Fort and we’re sure it will be a major draw for our visitors.
“We’re really pleased to have them on board – this national retailer will further enhance Manchester Fort as one of the key shopping destinations in the North West. We continue to see people travelling from afar thanks to the easy transport routes to the shopping park and the choice available.
“We’re looking forward to the store opening in the Summer and more details around the opening date will be released on our website.”
