The owner of the complex – Grosvenor Europe – has also announced the arrival of a new store.

Independent lifestyle and fashion brand Oliver Bonas is to open the brand’s first Liverpool store on upper South John Street.

An Oliver Bonas spokesperson said: “It has been our long-held goal to expand our retail footprint to Liverpool, where we believe our curated collections and eclectic designs will prove a hit.

“Liverpool One has a great reputation and a unique appeal with consumers from across the region. We will also be in great company amongst a host of other leading brands, making Liverpool One the ideal location to launch in the area.”

Alison Clegg, from Grosvenor Europe, added: “As one of the leading fashion and lifestyle brands in the UK, we are delighted to welcome Oliver Bonas, alongside the 25 renowned brands that have also committed to Liverpool One to date this year.

“The brand’s strategic selection of Liverpool One, alongside these other openings and significant lease renewals, highlights Liverpool One’s status as one the UK’s leading retail and leisure-led mixed-used destinations.”

The signing follows a series of recent announcements, including the upsizing of Pull&Bear on upper South John Street, the upcoming launch of a North West flagship for global beauty brand Too Faced, and the signing of luxury jewellers ROX for a 1,600 sq ft boutique on Peter’s Lane.
