Countdown to Benetton opening in Kirkby

by Alison Cornmell

The countdown is on for the opening of the United Colors of Benetton childrenswear store in Kirkby Town Centre.

The store will open at 25 St Chad’s Parade on Thursday 10 March 2022.

Owner & Director of Benetton Liverpool and Kirkby said, “I’m delighted at how the new store has been progressing with our internal fit-out.  I’ve had a lot of interest from people wanting to know when our Kirkby store will open so I’m delighted to confirm that we will be open on Thursday 10 March.

“I’m really looking forward to welcoming customers to our Kirkby store and can’t wait to be part of Kirkby’s ongoing transformation.  It truly is an amazing town, with lots of regeneration delivered and much more to come.  I’m also looking forward to getting know people and being part of the local community.”

Councillor Tony Brennan, Regeneration and Economic Development Cabinet Member, added, “I’m delighted to welcome Benetton to Kirkby because I know that this is something which local residents want.  We asked two years ago “what makes a good town centre?”, and, as well as a supermarket and more places to eat and drink, people also asked for more clothes shops.

“Securing this prestigious brand for Kirkby is fantastic news and I’ll be delighted to welcome Claire to Kirkby when the store opens on 10 March.

“Kirkby really is undergoing an amazing transformation.  The new retail development is now open and home to Morrisons, Home Bargains, KFC and Taco Bell with plans also progressing for a gym operator to be based at the site.

“Our plans for a cinema, complete with food and drink outlets, are also making good progress.

“This really is an exciting time for Kirkby and I’m so proud of what has been achieved over a short period of time.”

The store will be open from Monday to Saturday, 9.30am until 5pm and you can keep up-to-date with the latest news on Instagram – @benettonkirkby, Facebook – Benetton Kirkby or via the website – https://unitedcoloursofallerton.co.uk/
