A NEW JD Sports shop has arrived at the Pyramids Shopping Centre.

Situated on Grange Road, the 11,000 sq ft store opened at 9am on Saturday, March 3 offering sports footwear, clothing and accessories.

To celebrate the opening, the store also gave away a year's supply of trainers - up to the value of £1,000.

Centre director at Pyramids Shopping centre Derek Millar said: “We are thrilled to welcome JD to the centre.

"It’s one of the country’s leading players in branded sports and fashionwear distribution, with all the best names under its roof. This is a hugely exciting addition to our line up.

“Whoever wins the fantastic competition will have an excellent time choosing the latest designs to step out in.

"I’ve no doubt that JD is going to be another very popular hotspot with visitors.

“Pyramids is at the heart of the community and with that comes responsibility to deliver value, quality and a strong point of difference. JD is in line with our vision and will further add to our brilliant retail environment.

“I’d like to wish the JD team all the best for the opening and every success at Pyramids Shopping Centre.”

Iember Gordon, marketing manager at JD Sports, said: “We are incredibly happy to be reopening a brand-new store in Birkenhead.
