Liverpool One builds on flurry of openings with its latest two retailers

Liverpool One, the city centre retail centre, has welcomed two new retailers to its mix.

Owner, Grosvenor, has announced the arrival of luxury footwear retailer Kick Game, in a 3,500 sq ft space on South John Street and Boparan Restaurant Group’s Slim Chickens 5,000 sq ft flagship restaurant on The Terrace.

A luxury footwear retailer for highly sought-after brands, Kick Game’s city debut offers its complete range of sneakers and streetwear, including renowned brands adidas, Supreme and Nike. The new store is styled with a high luxury feel, complete with a full sneaker wall, and a ‘grail’ space – a dedicated section that displays limited edition styles in a gallery-esque format.

Alongside Kick Game, American dining brand Slim Chickens has opened its 175-cover restaurant, featuring an al-fresco dining area.

The menu includes its trademark buttermilk chicken tenders, alongside other American-inspired classics such as chicken wings, wraps and waffles. The opening follows a flurry of F&B (food and beverage) activity at Liverpool One, with the recent signings of Black Sheep Coffee and pan-Asian restaurant COSMO.

Alicia Thompson, CEO of Kick Game, said: “We are so excited to have opened the doors to our debut Liverpool store and introduce our exclusive selection of luxury sneakers and streetwear to the Liverpool audience. Recognised as an urban fashion hub, the city is a key location for Kick Game, enabling us to further enhance our presence nationwide.”

Robert Deacon, senior asset manager, Grosvenor, said: “Liverpool One continues to evolve both its retail and F&B offering, and the openings of both Kick Game and Slim Chickens are a testament to this.

“We’re proud to have two unique and well-renowned brands choose Liverpool One for their city debut, and are confident in their continued success in this dynamic city.”

Slim Chickens and Kick Game’s city debuts follow a series of 2022 openings at the destination, including the upsize of jewellery retailer David M Robinson and luxury furniture brand Timothy Oulton, alongside casual dining restaurant Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen.
