LIVERPOOL’S flagship retail and leisure destination, Liverpool ONE, is celebrating another record-breaking year. A total of 29 million people visited Liverpool ONE throughout 2016 – an increase of 1% compared to 2015. Thirty new stores and restaurants launched or under-went major refurbishment at the shopping complex during last year resulting in Christmas spend increasing by more than 8% compared to 2015. And Boxing Day was the busiest in Liverpool ONE’s history with 96,000 visitors – a 7% increase on the previous record which was set in 2015. Retail bosses said they are delighted with the success of the previous 12 months and put this down to three main factors:
- The strong line-up of new stores and restaurants which have chosen to invest at Liverpool ONE, including Victoria’s Secret and The White Company.
- The visitor experience offered at Liverpool ONE, not just retail and dining but a full entertainment programme too, including school holidays activities on Chavasse Park, local art installations and most recently the addition of the Lego Train attraction and augmented reality Fairy App to the festive line-up.
