Sky set to launch network of ‘social hub’ high street stores

Sky Liverpool

Sky is opening a network of high street stores for the first time, with its first outlet set to launch in Liverpool next week despite local lockdown restrictions.

The broadcasting giant plans to open a host of stores across the UK, which it plans to make “social hubs for shoppers”, with the first opening at Liverpool One shopping centre on Monday.

The move by Sky comes despite tier 3 restrictions in the city, which have resulted in footfall dropping to levels last recorded following the end of the national lockdown in July.
