Warriors to Open Retail Unit in Grand Arcade

Wigan Warriors can announce the opening of a new Club Shop in the Grand Arcade in the centre of the town.

The brand new outlet will open on Wednesday 9th December with an official launch on Thursday 10th December, the full details will be confirmed on www.wiganwarriors.com , and will be positioned on the ground floor of the centre opposite Next.

The Club have agreed an initial 6 month contract for the site and it will replace the current shop Warriors World in Hilton Street which will remain open for business as normal until 5pm on Tuesday. This will be a trial period for the Club and if successful we will look to extend the term. The Club Lotto Office will remain at its current location on Hilton Street.

The store will sell a wide range of Warriors Official merchandise including replica kit and training wear with new items arriving all the time.

Speaking about the news Chief Executive Mick Hogan said,

"We are delighted to have secured such a prestigious site within the town centre. The Grand Arcade is at the heart of the towns shopping area and provides an excellent location. In the lead up to Christmas this is ideal timing to re-locate our Club Shop and we hope to attract both our existing loyal supporters as well as more passing trade. This is the next stage in our Retail Strategy. In the last year we have appointed a new Head of Retail, installed a fully integrated EPOS system, launched a new on-line store, established a partnership with Asda and doubled the range of items we now sell. We are confident that our supporters will back the new Club Shop and we are all set for a very busy Christmas and Pre-season period."
