JD is set to upscale its presence in the UK this weekend. This expansion includes the opening of bigger and better stores in Altrincham, Paisley, and Dover, following on the heels of last week’s unveiling of an expansive new store in Edmonton Green.

Reinforcing its status as a key player in the UK’s trainer and sports fashion retail market, JD is committed to ensuring that shoppers across the UK have access to their favourite brands, including Nike, Adidas, The North Face, and Under Armour. Furthermore, the new stores have already collectively created over forty new jobs, bolstering employment in their respective local communities.

JD is encouraging consumers to experience these new stores during their opening weekend, promising an engaging shopping atmosphere. DJ sets are planned to provide the ultimate shopping soundtrack, and fun activations will be featured across the three stores. These include a range of free games, giving shoppers the chance to win JD gift cards.

James Air, Director – Head of Group Acquisitions at JD, shared his enthusiasm for the expansion: “We are delighted to be further extending our store network with brand new openings in Dover, Paisley, and Altrincham. The stores will be notably larger than previous stores in these locations, allowing us to stock many more of our much-loved brands.”
