Arket to open in Liverpool One in autumn 2018
H&M will open its fifth Arket store in the UK at Liverpool One in autumn 2018. The opening follows the brand’s launch in August 2017 with stores on Regent Street and Covent Garden, as well as in Copenhagen, Brussels, Munich and Amsterdam.
The new Arket store is located at 91–92 Paradise Street, Liverpool One, and will occupy a two-storey space of 8,500 sq ft.
Managing director Lars Axelsson said: “We entered the UK with two great central locations in London last autumn, followed by an opening in East London earlier this year. Liverpool One is an innovative and inspiring shopping destination and we feel very excited about the opportunity expand our presence in the UK.”
Alison Clegg, director of asset management at Grosvenor Europe, added: “The signing of Arket secures one of Europe’s most interesting new brands for Liverpool One. Their presence adds even more appeal to our offer, which is unique in the North West and one of the most compelling in the UK.”
Cushman & Wakefield and Metis Real Estate Advisors acted for Liverpool One.
