Iconic retailer HMV to open brand-new store in St Johns Liverpool


St Johns Liverpool, located in the heart of the city centre and a stone’s throw from Liverpool Lime Street Station, is welcoming a brand-new HMV store to the centre in July 2021. 

One of the country’s most iconic and recognisable high street names, HMV will open on Williamson Square, joining over 100 other businesses within St Johns, from local retailers to national brands like JD Sports and Matalan. 

The arrival of HMV at St Johns comes after the centre welcomed six new stores in April 2021, including Boom Battle Bar, American Candy Empire and VR Liverpool, signalling a positive outlook for both the centre and the wider retail sector. 

St Johns opened its doors in 1969 and has since established itself as a leading shopping centre in the North West. Its brand-new HMV store will occupy a 10,000 square foot unit in the centre, which will come as great news to the city’s music lovers. 

Founded in London in 1921, the HMV brand has since evolved into both a household name and a mainstay of the British high street. The new store opening in St Johns highlights the centre’s growing offering and its bounce back from the uncertainties of the last year. 

Phil Halliday, Managing Director of HMV, said: “We are delighted to be opening a new store in St Johns this July. There has been an HMV in Liverpool for many decades and we have always enjoyed sharing our enthusiasm for music, film and popular culture with the city’s community. 

“As we celebrate our 100th anniversary this year, we are thrilled to be launching an even bigger and better store, and our team are looking forward to opening our doors and welcoming in St Johns’ customers very soon.” 

Neil Ashcroft, Centre Manager at St Johns Liverpool, said: “HMV is an iconic and enduring brand, and we are delighted to have them joining us in St Johns this July. 

“St Johns has been an important part of the community for over 50 years and the arrival of HMV in the centre is a real cause for celebration. We’re thrilled to have our shoppers back and we’re even more delighted to be bringing them new, exciting stores for 2021.” 

HMV opens in St Johns Liverpool on 20th July. For more information on St Johns Liverpool and to explore its full range of stores, please visit: www.stjohns-shopping.co.uk
