Pop-up retail space operator is set to open its first site in the North West at Liverpool ONE’s Upper South John Street.
The opening – set for the beginning of November – marks the third partnership between Sook and scheme owner Grosvenor, following two successful ventures in London.
Taking a 1,250 sq ft space, Sook will operate at the Liverpool scheme for three months, offering leases ranging between three days and a month.
Making use of digital display boards, screens, and fixtures, the space will be designed to offer flexibility to suit tenant requirements. Sook also supplies retailers with a number of data analytics and digital planning tools, helping tenants operate with maximum efficiency.
Rob Deacon, senior asset manager at Grosvenor, said: “Supporting all brands from independents and local businesses to established names in retail has always been a huge part of our strategy at Liverpool ONE and Sook’s unique model allows local brands the opportunity to have a physical presence where they may not have been able to otherwise. Having Sook at Liverpool ONE for the three month period will showcase a refreshing selection of new brands, and we’re looking forward to seeing the success it will bring to our local and independent businesses.“
The signing of Sook at Liverpool ONE follows a number of recent retail lettings at the destination, with M&S opening its 70,000 sq ft store on South John Street, the launch of the £10m Gravity MAX experience, and the imminent opening of locally-founded activewear retailer Red Run.
