Fashion brand HUGO BOSS will expand its BOSS Store into the former Carluccios restaurant at Liverpool’s Metquarter.
The extension will give the retailer a total of 10,500 sq ft of space at the leisure and retail complex, which is currently undergoing transformation.
A new fit-out of the BOSS Store will be carried out, with the brand aiming to create a ‘refined, discerning space with a classic, modern feel as the design embraces the harmony between lines, shapes and colours’.
The new-look clothing shop is expected to reopen in March 2019.
Stuart Harris, commercial director at Queensberry which owns Metquarter, says: “BOSS expanding in to the former Carluccios space gives us a great fashion anchor at the front of the centre.
“We have a really exciting and transformative 12 months ahead for Metquarter with Kids Cavern opening in the next few weeks, Everyman in December, BOSS and a fantastic fashion boutique taking the former Armani Exchange unit opening in spring next year.
“We have also now agreed terms with a premium food hall operator to take 16,000 sq ft of space, housing 10 food kitchens representing a range of cuisines operated by local and regional chefs.
“These deals totalling nearly 70,000 sq ft will breathe new life into Metquarter, giving it a new identity that is both representative of Liverpool whilst showcasing some of the best international and British fashion brands.”
