We pride ourselves on the showroom experience we offer and the way we engage with our customers in this space. Liverpool One has the ability to attract visitors from all over the UK and further afield.”
Alison Clegg, director, asset management, Grosvenor Europe, added: “It’s a pleasure for Liverpool One to play a part in the local success story that is David M Robinson, and we’re pleased to have had the opportunity to build a relationship with the family business since the launch of Liverpool One.
“As part of its luxury DNA, David M Robinson has always placed great emphasis on providing the highest level of customer service, and in doing so, shows the importance of a physical retail presence for brands. The premium experience is a key aspect of our retail strategy for Liverpool One, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with David M Robinson as part of these plans.”
