Sports Direct to open in Sunderland former BHS

Sports Direct is set to open in the former BHS store in Sunderland next year.

A spokesperson confirmed to the Sunderland Echo that the store would open at the end of January.

The newspaper reported that the retailer’s existing branch in The Bridges is sporting “closing down” signs.

Earlier this year Drapers revealed Sports Direct-owned fashion fascia Flannels bought the former BHS store in St Helier, Jersey, and plans to open a 35,000 sq ft store in time for Christmas.

Sports Direct has not yet responded to Drapers’ request for comment.
