JD Sports Thistles store trebles in size

– Leading trainer and sports fashion retailer expands offering at Thistles, Stirling –

On Saturday December 3 sports-fashion retailer JD Sports will open the doors to a new 5,241 square foot store in Thistles, Stirling to meet the demand of the brand’s popularity in the city. The new home for the store will stock even more ranges across fashion, footwear and accessories from brands including Nike, Adidas and The North Face to provide customers with an even larger choice of their favourite products.

Shoppers will find the new store, which is three times larger than the old shop, opposite Superdrug and are invited to attend the opening weekend celebrations, which will include an in-store DJ and an interactive Labyrinth game where customers can compete against one another to get a ball through the maze in the fastest time. The top scorers on Saturday and Sunday will each win a £100 voucher to spend in store.

Gary Turnbull, Centre Director at Thistles said: “JD is a firm favourite with our shoppers and we’re delighted to see the brand invest in a larger retail space in the centre, cementing their commitment to Stirling.

“I’m confident our visitors will be impressed by the larger selection of brands on offer at the new store and encourage everyone to come along to the opening celebrations this weekend.”

James Air, Head of Group Acquisitions at JD Sports commented: “It was a pleasure to work with the Thistles team and their leasing agent Stuart Moncur at Savills to deliver our significantly larger store in Stirling. We wanted to ensure that we moved to the best available space for JD in the scheme which took some time and was a real team effort. We now have a superb store which will stock a far broader collection of new brands, whilst also delivering enhanced, upgraded ranges of the existing favourites.”
