JD Sports takes five former Kiddicare stores for Ultimate Outdoors

JD Sports has signed to take five former Kiddicare stores for its Ultimate Outdoors brand, which currently only trades from one store in Preston and online.

The sports retailer is adding more than 200,000 sq ft of trading space to its specialty outdoors business by taking on half of the closed Kiddicare outlets, according to Drapers’ sister title Retail Week.

The deal comprises the 58,000 sq ft premises in Aintree, the 47,000 sq ft property in Rotherham, the 41,000 sq ft store in Merryhill, the 34,000 sq ft site in Nottingham and the 34,000 sq ft shop in Southampton.

It has also emerged that Next is taking two of the former Kiddicare stores in Hayes and Enfield.

Supermarket group Morrisons sold its childrenswear business Kiddicare for £2m to the private equity firm Endless after three years of ownership and retained the 10 leases for Kiddicare stores to sell to other retailers.
