Growth follows 40% increase in trading across retailer’s stores.
North of England and Wales retailer Mococo has announced plans to significantly increase the size of its Liverpool store to 1,585 sq ft.
The Metquarter store, currently a 352 sq ft space, will be quadrupled, and new jewellery brands will be added to the store’s offer.
The growth follows notable sales uplift across Mococo’s five stores, which are currently trading 40% up on last year, with like-for-like sales up 28% for the retailer.
Mococo founder and brand director Maureen Hooson said: “Liverpool is the home of style, and the expansion of the Metquarter store is testimony to that. The store opened in May 2009 and has proven to be a huge hit with the city’s fashion conscious shopper. As a retailer, we are always looking to bring new and exciting jewellery collections to our customers, and this expansion allows us to do just that.
"The new and expanded store will stock even more brands than ever before from the likes of Chlobo, Shaun Leane and Thomas Sabo, along with brand favourites like Pandora and Swarovski, and new additions such as Diamonfire and Nomination.”
Mococo also operates stores in Chester, Mold, Ruthin and Wrexham, with ambitious plans to expand across the region forecast over the next 18 months. The retailer also recently launched its own members club, hosting special offers and sneak peeks of new collections.
Lee Hooson, managing director at Mococo, added: "We have exciting plans to extend our ranges in Liverpool, as a way of thanking our loyal customers for their continued support. Our customers are at the heart of our development plans. The more informed shopper deserves more from a retail experience and we are investing in our emporium and our people to ensure they receive just that.”
