Jewellery retailer to open shop on Whitechapel.
Liverpool jewellery retailer Wongs is set to open a shop in the city’s Whitechapel.
Wongs has signed a 10-year lease for a 2,650 sq ft ground floor and 1,115 sq ft basement property at 19 Whitechapel through property agent Mason Owen. The site was previously occupied by fashion retailer Lacoste which has relocated to shopping centre Liverpool One.
Rob Markland of Mason Owen’s retail team said: “The letting is positive news for city centre retail. The new tenant will strengthen the link between Church Street, Whitechapel and Queen Square and position this area a key retail district.”
Wongs was established in Liverpool in 1979 and sells a wide range of bridal and occasion jewellery, plus Fiorelli jewels and Boccia watches.
