Kick Game to open store in Arndale in Manchester
British sneaker and streetwear retailer Kick Game has opened a new store in Manchester as it continues to expand after a capital injection earlier this year.
The retailer will use the store to launch its largest collection outside of its flagship London product.
The Manchester space will feature a selection of rare and exclusive sneakers, like Air Jordan 1 and Yeezy, as well as clothing from streetwear brands Trapstar, Supreme and Fear of God Essentials.
Founded in 2013 by basketball brothers Robert and David Franks, Kick Game has tapped into the booming market for exclusive, rare and out of print sneakers.
“Manchester is an extremely diverse city – with people from all walks of life, cultures and backgrounds,” Robert said in a statement.
“But one thing that unites them is a mutual love for streetwear and sneaker culture. Kick Game is thrilled to become a hub for the sneaker community in Manchester, and we look forward to meeting you all.
The new store follows recent openings of Leeds Trinity Shopping Center and Birmingham’s Bullring & Grand Central.
In September, Kick Game announced that it had secured £ 3.5million in additional funding to help it grow in the UK and Europe over the next two years.
The retailer’s revenue has grown from £ 4.8million in the fiscal year 20 to an expected £ 20million in the 12 months leading up to November 30.
Based on its current performance, the retailer now expects sales of £ 50million by FY22.
