Furniture and homewares retailer Habitat has signed for a store in shopping centre Liverpool One.

The store, over two floors and covering 20,000 sq ft, will open in time for Christmas and will feature Habitat’s entire autumn winter 2009 range, focusing on living, dining and bedroom.

Tomorrow (Thursday) Liverpool One celebrates it first anniversary.

Grosvenor Liverpool Fund head of asset management Miles Dunnett said: “Habitat is a great addition to Liverpool ONE.  The presence of Habitat in Liverpool ONE will look to inspire new customers when looking to dress the interior of their homes.  It is a fantastic retail space and we are excited with Habitat’s concept design plans.  

Topshop opened its biggest UK store outside of London at Liverpool One earlier this month.
